The towpath between Fishponds Lock and Woodlesford Lock is to be closed during October and November 2018 as a result of dredging works on the Aire & Calder Navigation.  Whilst these works are being carried out pedestrians using the towpath will be able to cross over at the locks and use the path on the opposite side. Details of route closure (Updated 21st August 2018)


We are planning some minor improvements to the entrance of the TPT at Stevenson Road in Attercliffe. The works should start in two weeks and weather permitting should be completed by the end of February. The route remains open but there may be some disruption.

East Coast Road to Stevenson Road will be closed for works from 3rd September 2018 to 19th October 2018.  Please see attached Closure and diversion plan.  Note – this closure is for the Trans Pennine Trail, not just a footpath as indicated on the attached. (Updated 8th August 2018)

Europa Link –  A section of the Trail has been closed for engineering works.  A signed diversion in place locally as shown on the plan Sheffield Diversion (Updated 21st August 2018)


Penistone – National Grid are carrying out major maintenance work on  the high voltage pylon line across the borough over the next 6 months. At Springvale this requires scaffolding and width restriction on the TPT next to the railway line.  For around 20 metres the available width may be down to 2 metres so please ‘share with care’. (Updated 26th February)

Dunford Bridge – Please be aware that contractors will be on and around the Trans Pennine Trail to undertake ground investigation works from 3rd September 2018 for a duration of three weeks.  Banksmen will be in operation and the route will remain open during this period. (Updated 29th August 2018)

Thurgoland Tunnel – Please be aware the lights are currently out, Barnsley Council are aware and working to get them fixed as soon as possible. In the meantime please take care when you are passing. (Updated 4th October 2018)
