New bridleway path around the future Peak Resort estate

New bridleway path around the future Peak Resort estate

New bridleway path around the future Peak Resort estate, a sensible bonded surface either side of the bridleway gates should help combat erosion

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]

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?

Access onto Alexandra Road East up from old railway line

Side Weir Bridge Bluebank looking East

Side Weir Bridge Bluebank looking East

Milepost 2m

Cut through from Towpath to Cycle Path Wheeldon Mill TPT

Poor quality gate/kissing gate combination - upgrade needed to match the hardware installed within DCC's adjoining Markham Vale Development

Narrow bridge over the Doe Lea that requires upgrading to allow Multi User Trail accessibility

unnecessary obstructions dating back to when this was a live railway line

Looking down the steep slope towards the disused railway - steps required here to make safe for foot traffic - other users should be diverted to the south where the gradient is more manageable

Multi User Trail

Multi User Trail - variable surface quality

Multi User Trail

Junction of two existing Multi User trails

Connection between two very useful multi user trails

potential connectivity into the existing perimeter multi user trail

This informal path with an adequate surface would successfully link the existing perimeter track with a new path crossing the disused railway

steep slope up from the disused railway... its cycle-able by only the most able. The sensible upgrade is to create safe steps here for foot traffic, and route cycles/horses slightly safe where a slightly longer route exists with manageable ... [more]

crossing point over the long disused railway..the remaining ballast is somewhat uncomfortable underfoot

Narrow bridge over the Doe Lea that needs upgrading to a wider bridge to accommodate shared walking/cycling/horse traffic

narrow path that needs upgrading to full Multi user trail standards

Junction of at least two cycleable trails, that could readily be improved, the east-west trail needs upgrading to Multi User Trail to connect Poolsbrook and Markham Vale

Narrowing of the Multi User Trail as it approaches the existing ROW network

newly created multi user trail linking Poolsbrook and the Markham Vale development

newly created multi user trail - typical gravel surface

Gravel surfaced new section of multi user trail

Transition from tarmac surfaced shared footway to wide gravel surfaced Multi User Trail towards Poolsbrook

Shared footpath/cyclway and bridleway? Good tarmac surface appropriate for location

Excellent link to Markham Lane, very nicely tarmacced

Underpass beneath the M1 heading down to Markham Lane

Markham Vale mining remembrance figures

nice cycletrack alongside several figures from teh Markham Vale mining memorial

Gate and Horse hop

beautiful surface

underpass beneath the M1

nice smooth surface, and a well maintained track

Nicely tarmaced path connecting Markham Lane to Duckmanton beneath the M1

Track down from the Doe Lea floodbank towards the M1 underpass

Access track crossing up to the new Seymour Link Road

View from the station link bridge.

Track improvement work in progress - hospital back entrance for cycles, July 2009
