  1. For free parking on the west side (near the University/Hospitals) the controlled parking ends about halfway down Oxford St, from there it is a nice (though steep) walk back up through the Ponderosa and Weston Park.
  2. There's a previous thread on this...but a long time ago. There are eight Grade II listed ones in the Sheffield unitary authority, details can be found at Historic England, search for K6 in the Entry Name box
  3. This was reported in Manchester Evening news an hour ago news item here
  4. The junction with Rails Road is the prime location for accidents. For eastbound traffic on Rivelin Valley Road there is no restriction on crossing the centre line even at this junction, and this may compromise the sight lines for traffic pulling out of Rails Road. Eastbound traffic turning onto Rivelin Valley Road from Manchester Road does not always respect the lower speed limit, hence the temporary speed cameras that sometimes pop up there.
  5. To be strict, an estimated 41% of her constituency electorate voted leave, 26% voted remain and 33% abstained from voting, so by abstaining in a parliamentary vote Angela Smith would at least represent 1/3 of her constituents:)
  6. Another pleasant route across (except in snow) is Hope Valley, Winnats Pass and Rushup Edge, park at New Mills: 2 stations, 5 trains an hour to Manchester at peak times.
  7. Another rat-run avoiding the centre of Glossop on the north side is: Continue along A57 past the Esso petrol station to just before the A624 junction Turn right on Ellison Street and continue right on Norfolk Street to top of hill Left on Cemetery Rd and straight on along Park Rd and Hadfield Rd, then left at Woolley Bridge Rd, this drops you back on the A57 at Woolley Bridge. The satisfaction gained may sustain you during the slow crawl up to Mottram:)
  8. Re: previous post. Crown immunity was abolished by the Crown Proceedings Act 1947. The railways were nationalised in 1948, prior to this one can presume that the land was in private ownership. The footpath existed from 1923 as shown on Ordnance Survey maps of that time. Under the Rights of Way Act 1932 if the public had enjoyed uninterrupted access for 20 years then the path would become a public highway, UNLESS the landowner had erected signage to the contrary or had deposited documents with the local authority stating that the path was not dedicated for public access (i.e. if it was a permissive path rather than a right of way). An inspection of council records would confirm if this was the case. For those interested in re-opening the path the Open Spaces Society have a good track record in restoring public access in instances where it has been withdrawn.
  9. The footpath first appears on the 2nd revision OS 1:2500 map, dated 1923. In the previous edition of the OS map (1:2500 1st revision, dated 1905) there was a footpath that headed northeast across, or possibly under, the Great Central Railway line to connect with Back Lane (now Baxter Road). When the railway sidings were built it appears that this footpath was diverted southeast past the coal offices to connect with the station approach road. So there was very likely a public right of way along this path in the 1920s, though finding documentary evidence for the footpath diversion would help to make the case stronger.
