Railway path at Halton Lea Gate
Railway path at Halton Lea Gate
This section of "Lord Carlisle's Railway" from Brampton to Lambley dates from 1824 and served the coal mines in the area; it was closed in 1953.

This stretch of the line has been upgraded to make a good path for walkers and cyclists. It offers cyclists the opportunity to ride for over 4 km from Halton Lea Gate to Tindale away from the A689 and although inadequately signed (there is no signage at this point where it meets a road) has been designated as "National Cycle Route 72". All quite misleading - the path is not connected at either end to signed cycle routes, nor does it make any connection with the main strand of Route 72 (Hadrian's Cycleway) some 7 km to the north.
