    Liep van Disbury tot Broadbottom gisteravond en moet zeggen dat de bewegwijzering was verschrikkelijk! Echt moeite om de route op verschillende plaatsen te volgen. Heeft iemand eigenlijk dit te controleren? Borden zijn verborgen of non-existent op veel plaatsen. Misschien moet iemand te rijden of lopen en controleer?

      My 12 year old grandson and his 76 year old grandad, have spent the last two Thursdays walking a total of 22 miles on the trail, in training for a sponsored walk from Sale to Southport. The money will be used to assist scouts in attending an international camp in Switzerland late this year.

    Kan ik stel voor dat we een lijst krijgen van de lokale B&B's, cafés & pubs dicht bij de route zetten op de website.
    Op Dunham Massey het touw en anker pub is 100 meters van het spoor, maar veel mensen zou gaan zonder het te weten. Bij de volgende kruising Atlantische straat Altrincham het café bij de lokale winkels en het Asda café zijn handig, maar niemand zou die vinden.

    we have issues with motorcycles in stanley wakefield near St peters crescent wf34ap- youths on dirt bikes and now a neighbor with a brand new yellow speed motorcycle going up and down on the trail. The police has been informed and we are waiting for something to happen. Having the back garden literally next to the trail we get all the noise and all the fumes from these bastards. There are no visible signs against motorcycles- could someone do something about this?

      Hello Marcus

      sorry to hear about the issues are having with the motorcycles. I imagine that can be very unpleasant. Ik kan de lokale overheid officer te informeren voor uw gebied van het probleem en stuur uw zorgen te horen en te zien of we iemand naar beneden te komen en te zien kunnen krijgen als ze een aantal signage met betrekking tot deze kan zetten.

      Met vriendelijke groet Trans Pennine Trail Team

    Ik heb een e-mail naar Warrington Borough Council benadrukkend een voortdurende wateroverlast probleem dat vaak maakt een deel van het parcours onbegaanbaar gestuurd. Het gedeelte loopt tussen Bradshaw lane, Grappenhall, Warrington en Thelwall British Legion, Thelwall, Warrington. Ik zou het waarderen je toezicht op de situatie.

      Dank u voor ons te laten weten – we hebben een nota van deze op de TPT probleem databank gemaakt, zodat we in staat om dit te controleren zal zijn voor jou.
      Ik weet dat we hebben meegemaakt sommige extreme weer in de afgelopen maanden dus dit is ook een grote bijdrage.

    Kan er iets gedaan worden over de toestand van de TPT door middel Tapton Golf Course? Het is begaanbaar alleen mountainbikes en alleen door ruiters bereid nat en modderig te krijgen. Het zou, en moet, zijn een handige manier om de steile en smalle Crow Lane voorkomen, en link naar de nieuwe route die de Chesterfield Raad bouwen van Queens Park naar Chesterfield Railway Station, maar ik heb hier af gedaald als gevolg van de slechte staat van het oppervlak, en het zou zeer gevaarlijk zijn voor mijn kinderen om het te gebruiken om in de stad. Ik heb in contact met Chesterfield Raad geweest, die in contact met de eigenaar weinig effect. Ik ben niet helemaal zeker wie verantwoordelijk is voor het onderhoud van de route, maar ze zijn nog niet aan iets anders dan een technisch mountainbike parcours bieden.

    Er is een nieuw teken opgericht bij mij op Pipering Lane, Scawthorpe, Het is een gezamenlijke bord met Doncaster Greenway.
    Het vorige 'Selby-Bentley’ ondertekenen gericht TPW volgelingen neer Pipering Lane richting Bentley Park en het pad naar de in onbruik geraakte spoorlijn aan de achterkant van het park. De nieuw teken leidt volgelingen over de weg in de richting van Jossey Lane, waar ik me voorstellen dat het moet dan gaan over de spoorbrug naar het park.

    Ik ben gewoon wijzen dit uit, als, Als het correct is, de weg over de brug is moeilijk wegverkeer, of is het teken gewoon te wijzen op de verkeerde manier??

    What a fantastic resource!! I am new to cycling as I’m training for a charity ride in Cambodia. I need to practice on varied terrain and get really scared on roads. The route from Lymm to Southport was ideal. I did purchase the map which is really clear but the route is so well signposted we could have managed without. We stayed at the Leicester in Southport which was really nice and they locked our bikes away overnight. Brilliant thank you!!!

    I plan to walk the entire trail from Southport to Hornsea in May/June 2016. I am struggling to find cheapish accomodation and dont want to “tent it.” Any suggestions about where to stay and which towns may warrant more than 1 night, would be great. Dank u.

      Hi Claire,

    TPT – Stockport to Sheffield/Rotherham

    Er, my girlfriend and I are very keen cyclists looking for adventure and love the TPT. We’ve been out to Reddish Vale today. We’re just wondering if there’s an off road trail over the Pennines to Sheffield/Rotherham ?

    Best Regards

    Spent 2 great days, picking up the trail in Sheffield and riding through to Hornsea – (Opmerking – friendly helpful staff @ The Wishing Well/Selby)
    Generally – we found the signs/directions really well placed
    Worst section was Hull city centre, signs not great and route far too “urban” (Elloughton > Beverly > Hornsea – a detour?).
    But overall a great route and experience

    Each year we have our adults only long distance ride. For almost 4 years one guy has asked for this route and as always it’s been shelved in favour of other routes. I’m an out and out roadie with little interest in trail riding. How wrong I’ve been. This route is up there with best of all we’ve previously done. It’s got everything you could want and more. If you’re wavering on wether or not to do this, take the plunge… You won’t regret it

    I’ve read a couple of things on the web that give differing answers on the distance of the central transpennine trail (Chesterfield to Leeds). Would it be possible to clarify what the distance is (we’re trying to work out whether it is possible to complete the route over 2 dagen)?

    Reply
    • Hannah Beaumont

      Morning, I can confirm the central route is approximately 75 miles in total depending on which route you take.
      If you require any further information please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
      Kind Regards

    Great to have this route across, but wish signing was more consistent. We had no problem on Yorkshire side with Selby to Bewdley and up to Dunford Bridge, but then found signing far less good on western side. Completely missed turn down to Woodhead from the rough moorland track so ended up on main road. On the road sections this side some of the simple lamppost sickers with NCN route numbers would help a lot as reassurance.

    Had a good day today cycling from Widnes to Warrington and back with the kids aged 14, 11 and the toddler in the trailer. Just found a couple of places where we struggled to get our bike trailer through some gates and had to lift it over one of them. I was glad I wasn’t on my own with the kids.

    Great website!
    Looking forward to a long weekend 3-6 Oct 2014 to cycle Southport to Hornsea with Dr Brown. I’ll be on a re-purposed MTB with skinny tyres, and Fraser will be sporting his C’dale badboy…. both plus panniers – are tents a good idea in Oct?
    Both probably wearing way too much hi-viz but avoiding the lycra look, and speaking Scottish! If you see us, say hello 🙂

    Went on the TPT met a ranger who showed me how to get fro Meadowhall to Sheffield then on to Sheffield airport then down towards Rother Vally Country park then up through Ully and on to Rotherham then back on to Meadowbank. Well tiring but a sence of achievement if it wasn’t for Ted i wouldn’t have found the route and been so shattered but going to do it again.

  20. RAMP IT UP!

    The riverside area between Spike Island, Widnes and Pickering’s Pasture has a massive series of wooden steps reaching up many metres and wheelchair users are warned that their lovely riverside journey must end. Can’t a campaign be started to get ramps built – maybe by volunteers who work in trade and use the route? It reaches up to a great height. I spoke to kids there who said it should be changed for wheelchair users but I suspect they might have liked biking or skateboarding down the ramps too.

    Can the authorities not build a route and better access for wheelchair users but also build the kids their own activities ramp so as not to disturb wheelchair users as well? The view is good there and it seems a shame if they can see so much more of the TPT but not that section. If this has been mentioned before why is it still not sorted? If TPT organizers have a pot of money and have to choose where to make improvements I am nominating this spot as a place to be improved.

    I cycled Warrington to Altrincham in August 2013. Glorious day. Crops being harvested. Well signed route and lots of early blackberries.

    Nothing stops us! What a fantastic find this was. Me and 2 good friends have been trying to cover as much of the T.P.T as possible pushing my husband in his manual wheelchair. We can only do 7-8 miles at a time as he has M.S, is unable to walk and gets very uncomfortable, and of course due to family commitments and weather conditions we have sadly had to cancel some planned days. The fabulous days,laughs and experiences we have had could not be replaced! Up to now (Jan 2014) we have covered 160 miles West to East, en 41 miles on legs. Now for the tricky bit in the middle! Fingers crossed for the completion this year.
    Many thanks to the Planners, Signers and Volunteers, we have had some amazing unforgettable memories! We have logs of all our walks if anyone needs information on terrain, facilities etc. from experienced pushers!!

      That’s an uplifting story, Ruth. My wife and I wish you all the best in attempting the completion.
