SJ9594 : Sustrans Signpost at Swain's Valley: Centre Detail

The inscription on the lower half of the signpost reads:

DOWN A WANDERING PATH
I HAVE TRAVELLED,
WHERE THE SETTING SUN
LIES UPON THE GROUND,
THE TRACKS ARE HARD AND DRY
SMOOTHENED WITH
THE WEATHER'S WEAR
MY MIND DID MOVE
WITH THEM THAT HAD
BEFORE ME BEEN,
TRODDING DOWN THE GROUND
A TRACK FOR ME TO FOLLOW
LEAVING MARKS FOR OTHERS
A SIGN FOR THEM TO FOLLOW.

DAVID DUDGEON 1999
National Cycle Network Mileposts
1000 Millennium cast iron mileposts were funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland to mark the creation of the National Cycle Network, and found along the cycles routes through the UK.

There are four different types of posts, "Fossil Tree" by John Mills, "The Cockerel" by Iain McColl, Rowe Type by Andrew Rowe, and "Tracks" by David Dudgeon. The four artists are from each country of the UK though all posts can be found in all four countries.
