Newcastle-under-Lyme: Brampton Sidings
Newcastle-under-Lyme: Brampton Sidings
This is the dead-end of Brampton Sidings, but a path continues on to meet the A34. It is also a National Cycle Route. This is more or less the route of the long-gone Newcastle-Market Drayton railway line, as the road's name 'Sidings' suggests.
The National Cycle Network
The National Cycle Network is a network of cycle routes. It was created by the charity Sustrans LinkExternal link (Sustainable Transport), aided by a National Lottery grant.

Many routes aim to minimise contact with motor traffic, though 70% of them are on roads. In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.
National Cycle Route 551
National Cycle Route 551 is entirely contained within the borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme. It runs between the western extremity of Silverdale eastwards through Newcastle, terminating on the A52 east of the town centre. For the whole of its length the route runs along the former trackbed of the Newcastle-Market Drayton railway line.
