SK4961 : The Skegby Trail

The Skegby Trail
The Skegby Trail
The photograph shows the Skegby Trail continuing northwards toward Pleasley at a point where, to the left SK4761 : The Link Trail branches off toward a junction with the Silverhill Trail.

When this trail was created it was called the 'Skegby Track' rather than the 'Skegby Trail'
which, presumably, was a reference to these routes originally being railway tracks.

Similar signage can be seen in this photograph at SK4761 : The Link Trail and in this photograph by Alan Murray-Rust of the SK4963 : Skegby Track. The change from 'track' to 'trail' appears to have been made before SK4761 : The eastern end of the Silverhill Trail was constructed.

Originally there was another board above 'Skegby Track' where the wording 'Teversal Trails' was included. (See the wording on the signage in this photograph by John Poyser:- SK4961 : Teversal Trail.) The term 'Teversal Trails' was a collective reference to the group of three trails, namely the Skegby Trail, the Link Trail and the Teversal Trail. These trails are included in the Ashfield Trails Network LinkExternal link and the Phoenix Greenways network LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) .
