M1 Motorway
The M1 is a north–south motorway connecting London to Leeds, where it joins the A1(M) near Aberford. It was the first motorway to be completed in the United Kingdom.
The motorway is 193 miles long and was constructed in four phases. Most of the motorway was opened between 1959 and 1968 but the southern end was extended in 1977 and the northern end was extended in 1999.
Trans-Pennine Trail
The Trans Pennine Trail is a long-distance path running from coast to coast across Northern England entirely on surfaced paths and using only gentle gradients (it runs largely along disused railway lines and canal towpaths). It forms part of European walking route E8 and is part of the National Cycle Network.
The surface and gradients make it a relatively easy trail, suitable for cyclists, pushchairs and wheelchair users. Some parts are also open to horse riding.
The trail Starts at Southport and ends at Hornsea a distance of 207 miles.
