SD6467 : County boundary at Mewith

taken 8 months ago, near to Low Bentham, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

County boundary at Mewith
County boundary at Mewith
This sign where Mewith Lane crosses the Eskew Beck marks the boundary between Lancashire and North Yorkshire. Barely three hours into my four-day ride across the country on the Way of the Roses, this demonstrates how Yorkshire actually covers about 90% of the width of the North of England. As a Lancastrian by birth but married to a Yorkshire lass, I am in no position to say whether that is a good thing.

To the right, next to the bicycle, is a parish boundary stone SD6467 : Parish boundary at Mewith.
The Way of the Roses
The Way of the Roses is a 170 mile signed cycle route from Morecambe to Bridlington, nearly all on public roads and making extensive use of other National Cycle Network routes. It forms a shorter and less demanding alternative to the original "coast to coast" cycle route. Most people who tackle it do it in three or four days, though some manage it in two.
