Way of the Roses east of Halton
Way of the Roses east of Halton
Just east of the former Halton station SD5064 : Former Halton station near Lancaster, a sign alongside the cycle route explains that the road is owned by United Utilities for access to one of their operational sites, but permissive access is granted to walkers and cyclists. It was originally a line of the Midland Railway connecting with their Carnforth-Leeds route at Wennington.
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.
