Welcome to the Trans Pennine Trail
A national coast to coast route for recreation and transport – for walkers, cyclists and (in parts) horse riders
“Disability isn’t always visible”
This project was launched by the Friends of the Trans Pennine Trail following a donation from the legacy of Pat and Bryan Allison. Pat and Bryan’s story has helped our Partners right across the Trans Pennine Trail network to see how changes can make the route more accessible. It is thanks to this kind donation we have been able to create an exemplar route at Torside which has attracted additional funding to enable the project to grow and provide a whole range of improvements for all visitors.
Still to Come!
Over the next few months there will be further additions to the Longdendale Access Project site including surfacing and vegetation improvement works. Updates of these works will be posted here.
We also hope that come 2022 we will be able to work alongside Peak District National Park to look at how access can be improved either side of the REAP crossing – something that we never thought would be possible when we first started!
