The Friends of Cheadle Railway will meet Thursday 27th July
A GROUP of cyclists, walkers and riders hoping to drive through plans to re-open a disused railway as a footpath and bridleway are to meet again.
The Friends of Cheadle Railway will meet again on Thursday 27th July at 7pm in The Anchor Inn.
Formed by a group of cyclists from Upper Tean, the group is keen to see the stretch of the old branch line from Totmonslow to Cheadle transformed into a usable route.
In recent years there have been several plans to create a walking, cycling and horse-riding route from the Cresswell end of the line right through to Cheadle.
Cyclist Darryl Worthington is spear-heading the campaign.
He said: “This would give lots of people the opportunity to walk, cycle, and ride horses along this lovely traffic free pathway.
“I have spoken to some local residents from Mobberley who would like to ride their horses along this route instead of using the very busy main road, there is already a large number of people who walk their dogs along the railway line and back down the public foot path.
“The opportunities to make this old disused line into a fantastic public facility are endless especially as it is already used by so many people.”
