This extension of NCN66 will be particularly useful if you are travelling through to Wakefield to catch a train or pick up the TPT to go to Sheffield or Leeds. Please put in a message of support!

Support the Monsal Trail link proposal

A planning application has gone in for a signed link between the Monsal Trail , which should be available by Easter 2011 with the tunnels re-opened making for a level, motor traffic-free route from Bakewell, and Buxton town centre and station.

To support it, go to and search for the Planning Ref NP/HPK/1010/1096 When the same ref appears somewhere near centre left centre on screen, click on it, then on "Add Comments". It'll ask your name, address, phone and email and give you the opportunity to click "Support" and to add a brief comment if you wish. Finally tick the "declaration" box and "send".
This is part of  a spectacular project ~ part of NCN680 ~ that deserves our support in spades.
