Signpost Report, September 2018

David Morton, Signposts Officer and Trustee

This article is from Signpost 59, Spring 2019

It has been a bumper autumn. Twenty-two signposts have been installed from October to early December. No more were stolen or vandalised and S019 at Kinder Reservoir has been modified and reinstated, so we now have a total of 512. Several are in the outlying areas of Ashover, Holymoorside and Brampton, NE Derbyshire and Blacko, near Colne.

Peter Ash repainted S251 at Gradbach and has sourced stainless steel fixings for Toposcope 3, which is on order. We have re-posted Ramblers Association sign 1 at Anglezarke Moor, in return for a donation. S019b, which was the sole survivor of the vandalism to S019, has replaced the smashed cross plate on S002/29. I also wedged S002’s post and fitted a new Join Us Plaque, after shifting several closure notices. I gather that the bridge over the dangerous bog on the bridleway to Carr Meadow needs major repairs, so brace yourself for long delays, as per Shelf Brook bridge 10 near Doctor’s Gate in 2015-2016. I also have landowners’ consent for one sign at Norden , Rochdale and four at Higher Gills Farm, Rimington near Clitheroe, Lancs.

Footpath Inspectors are encouraged to follow the example of, inter alia, Keith Feltham, Bill Parke, Shirley Addy, John Harker, Jack Burling, Harry Scott and Joe Park in contacting me to suggest locations for PNFS signposts, particularly in walking areas where we have few or none.

I can be contacted on: 0161 283 7824, if you have any questions.
