Firstly at the Morley end as shown in John Swan's pictures linked from the previous post.
Secondly on the new crossing of the A608 road just past the Brookside Road/ A608 junction, and thirdly on cutting a swathe through the woodland where the new path skirts the SSSI Nature Reserve in the old railway cutting.
From the top end of the existing path at Sixoate Gate, the crossing of Brookside Road will be much improved with a 3m wide tarmac path replacing the existing narrow pavement. The route then crosses the main road and runs parallel to it through the woodland.
With pavement for walkers (left) and wider track for cyclists (right). Both will be tarmaced,
This all brings back memories of the early days of the Breadsall Greenway. We did a trailblazing ride in January 2006 and that was a day to remember indeed. The then overgrown and derelict railway path got more and more difficult the further we went. Mud, running water, impenetrable undergrowth and yet more mud, so we gave up eventually, having to climb out of the cutting up the 45 degree banking with our bikes being pulled up on a rope which Mavis happened to have in her saddlebag.
Alan Locke took this photograph of us at the start of the ride and later said "Poor mutts - little did they know what lay ahead!"
Sustrans had previously told us that this route would never be built as it was not a commuter route and "went nowhere".
Nevertheless, Derbyshire County Council got on with it in 2009 and the rest is history.
