Fossil Tree milepost at Apethorn
One of six new mileposts recently erected by Sustrans on the former Godley to Apethorn railway line, now Trans Pennine Trail and National Cycle Network Route 62. 1000 Millennium cast iron mileposts were funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland to mark the creation of the National Cycle Network, and they are now to be found along the cycles routes through the UK.
There are four different types of posts, "Fossil Tree" by John Mills, "The Cockerel" by Iain McColl, Rowe Type by Andrew Rowe, and "Tracks" by David Dudgeon. The four artists are from each country of the UK though all posts can be found in all four countries.
This one at Apethorn Lane is of the "Fossil Tree" design. It is 3 and a half miles to Reddish Vale and 2 and a half miles to Godley.
For a view from the path itself see Hyde Daily Photo.
