Peak & Northern Footpaths Society (est.1894)


Shirley M Addy, BA, Editor and Footpath Inspector

This article is from Signpost 59, Spring 2019

As this is the first edition of Signpost since I became its editor, it provides a good opportunity to introduce myself.

I joined the PNFS over three years ago and immediately became Footpath Inspector for the Ribble Valley. I have now become only too aware of the problems we walkers encounter wandering along footpaths and bridleways. Readers will realise that I am not alluding to ubiquitous winter mud but missing signposts, hazardous stiles, chained gates and obdurate obstructions. I have now reported over 150 such issues affecting PROWs but I still love exploring routes in my parishes that I have not previously walked. That’s what PNFS is for!

I am currently voluntary editor for two other society magazines, and have also written and published several books. I plan to put this experience to good use in Signpost over the next few issues and hope its readers will approve of my efforts.

I would like to thank all our contributors for their enthusiastic efforts, and encourage other members to send me articles for publication in Signpost. That way Signpost can continue to be an interesting and informative magazine. My contact details are on the last page.

Happy walking!
