Old railway line

(locked) gate access onto former pit tip.

Path heading towards Poolsbrook from Seymour / Netherthorpe, can get quite muddy other side of gate, but there's a better way by going left immediately after the ballast and staying in front of the fence until access opens up a little furth ... [more]

Access over bridge towards Shuttlewood / Woodside

Secure fence and well locked gate onto Buttermilk Lane

Cleared section of railway line, looking south.

Cleared section of old railway at Markham Vale. M1 motorway in the distance

Footpath that leads from river Doe Lea west flood bank to the branch line

Public footpath at side of Bolsover branch line, recently cleared, included ramped surface down from old railway line.. Footpath leads down onto Seymour Link Road.

Recently cleared old public footpath providing access from Bolsover branch line to Seymour Link Road

Old footbridge over ditch/brook. Was overgrown with brambles and grass. Part of a disused public footpath from the old Markham Lane before it was rerouted, Could provide useful access from the Bolsover branch line. The wood seems rotten dow ... [more]

Stockley trail extension looking towards Poolsbrook/M1 underpass.

Bolsover branch line / Stockley Trail extension, looking towards Poolsbrook/Seymour Link Road.

According to recent ordnance survey maps there is a footpath crossing over the river Doe Lea here, but it looks like it's there hasn't been any access across here for some time, can see some evidence that a bridge was here...

Old railway line from Bolsover towards Poolsbrook/Seymour Link Road.

Are these type of barriers really necessary?

unnecessary barriers?

A fairly pleasant shared use trail, just in need of a tickle to keep from becoming overgrown and slippy from leaf litter

Shared use trail parallel to the River Rother

More barriers

Informal path offering a clue towards the potential space for a new off road shared cycle path running alongside the River Rother, linking Spital with the Railway station without the need to share a road

Looking up from an informal path towards the Toucan crossing on Hollis Lane.. A possible location for a new bit of segregated infrastructure perhaps?

informal path running parallel to the Rother

An informal path that could perhaps be used to create a new piece of cycling infrastructure?

Looking in the direction of other paths that wouldn't be too difficult to link into and create a new piece of shared infrastructure to enable segregated safe cycling between Spital and Chesterfield Station

bridge over the hipper - adequate width to enable shared walking/cycling

The base of a somewhat unloved but very valuable overbridge...in need of some TLC

At the foot of an essential overbridge that crosses two busy dual carriageways and connects to the Hipper Valley Cycleway

Railway underbridge.... somewhat dark and depressing, but surprisingly seems fairly tidy beneath, I expected more evidence of ant-social behaviour

A path in need of some maintenance, looking towards the Underbridge beneath Chesterfields railway line

A rather narrow section of path, but there is some scope to widen a little. Standing water a problem, but as this path sits up above an adjacent river it shouldn't be a big challenge to improve the drainage

Path crossing of Clayton St close to industrial unit accesses. The walkers painted onto the tarmac wouldn't be obvious to traffic, rendering them a little pointless

Path looking towards crossing of Clayton Street

I wonder if that streetlamp is functional ?

A potentially cycleable route (After some improvements)

potential connectivity to Hollis Lane Toucan crossing and the railway station, although this route currently cuts short and exits on Spital Lane

Bridge - in reasonable condition

a narrow path, that has some scope to increase in width to enable shared use

Could this position offer a clue to an improved exit of this footpath onto Spital Lane to enable cycling along this route

narrow section of path

currently narrow, but room to improve to enable cycling

first section of path certainly could be wide enough to enable cycling

Disappointingly marked as no-cycling, yet this path could offer an excellent upgraded cycling link from Derby Road to the station, and from Spital and Hady into the Town Centre

Access from the Clough that could so easily be upgraded to encourage cycling

looking north along a connecting path towards several housing roads off Hady Lane.. which all appear connected together

Just after the exit from Hady Lane looking along the line of the disused railway towards the bridge over Dingle Lane

Along the line of the track bed looking towards the crossing point of Hady Lane

looking back down at an obviously regularly used access point to housing off Spital Lane

the gravel riders would love this...

A very cycleable old track bed

Split in the path, to the right is Hartington road ,the path left heads towards Alexandra road East and the old railway

Footpath offering access into Hady primary School - too narrow for cycling at the moment, but could be readily increased in width by removal of the horrible pre-cast concrete fence on the south side, and some widening of the path

the official surfaced footpath, with an informal track to the south.. interestingly regularly illuminated making it an attractive proposition to upgrade to shared use

this muddy track runs parallel to the official footpath around Spital Park and is obviously widely used by locals

Footpath alongside the access road into Hady primary School - too narrow for cycling at the moment, but could be readily increased in width by removal of the horrible pre-cast concrete fence on the south side, and some widening of the path

Footpath alongside the access road into Hady primary School - too narrow for cycling at the moment, but could be readily increased in width by removal of the horrible pre-cast concrete fence on the south side, and some widening of the path

the end of Harvey Road... a teasing piece of land potentially offering a cycleable connection up to Hady Hill and the Hospital perhaps?

Path between Hady Hill and Harvey Road

Splitter island in the centre of Hady Hill offers an acceptable crossing point, although not controlled

A little Shortcut?

Old railway line from Hady Lane going towards Dingle Lane

Access from Hady Lane towards Dingle Lane

Looking towards Hady Lane, flat land, ideal for a cycle path between Spital and Hady

Ideal flat access between Spital and Hady Lane, just needs a bit of clearance

Plenty of space between the trees to create a flat and wide cycle path between Spital and Hady

Path from Alexandra Road East leading towards Hady, a much flatter route than the old railway line

Path to Alexandra Road East from Hady

Path through the trees to Spital from Hady, narrow in places but flat land and there's scope for a wider quite direct path to be created without losing many well established trees.

Path from Hady to Spital, needs a little clearance in places but otherwise a generally flat route, many of the trees can be avoided if a slightly different and maybe more direct route is chosen

Current path from Hady to Spital through trees

Path from Hady Lane to Spital through trees, quite flat and direct, albeit restricted in places for cycling currently.

Access onto Spital Lane from old railway line, through recreation ground.

Access onto Spital Lane from railway line, narrow but potential cycle access path.

To the left, access down onto Spital Lane. The path on the right leads up to Alexandra Road East but is very steep and has steps.

Access towards Hartington Road

Access between Alexandra Road East and Hartington Road

Access onto Alexandra Road East up from old railway line

Steep incline onto Alexandra Road East, not really suitable for cycling

Steps leading up to Alexandra Road East, not suitable for cycling

steep footpath leading up to Spital from old railway line
