SK4263 : Entrance to a Footpath

Entrance to a Footpath
Entrance to a Footpath
The photograph shows the entrance to a diversion off the SK4263 : Five Pits Trail. Ahead and left is a picnic bench with a SK4263 : View over fields.
Ahead and to the right, the SK4263 : Footpath leads through a small wooded area. Also, a little way along, this footpath is joined by another from SK4363 : Locko Lane.

The copse in this photograph grows on reclaimed industrial (railway) land adjacent to opencast workings that have also been reclaimed. Although, superficially well reclaimed with realistic contours, the ground is poor. Drainage is very limited, the ground is hard and during wet weather, substantial amounts of water sit on the surface causing the top inch or so to be very muddy. At times this path is not for the fainthearted!

To see the southern (right, some 200metres distant) entry point to the diversion, click here SK4263 : Stile.
