A poignant tribute to 48-year-old Darren Maironis, of Tyldesley, who died at this junction in summer 2021.

New crossing of the A556. While this certainly improves safety on the previous method of crossing (which was legally dodgy and not safe), the long wait times do not help.

This formerly horrible unpaved track has been upgraded. There's still an unpaved section south of here to Hermitage Lane but this upgrade makes life much, much easier.

Nantwich , Churchyardside

Swine Market, Nantwich

Pepper Street in Nantwich which was founded on a brine stream.

Two-lane crossing at a roundabout exit for the new link road. This is not good enough - it should be a single lane, and the speeds should be significantly lower. This is dangerous.

Temporary traffic calming on Broad Walk

I agree with this sign - lots of motorists speed around these roads and some are impatient over this bridge.

I'm not sure what the legal status of this route is but you can open the gate to reach the quieter service road. This is a useful shortcut if you're headed west, toward Lymn.

Macclesfield pedestrian zone.

A steep cobbled street in Macclesfield called Back Wallgate.

The Middlewood Way from Marple to Macclesfield leisure route, ends rather abruptly at this supermarket exit.

Access to the Middlewood Way from Marple to Macclesfield leisure route is on the right down some steps.

Another section of cleared footway, while not a cycle lane this allows people to cycle between Linnards Lane and the [heavily overgrown] cycle crossing just past Ascot Drive. The footway narrows somewhat at the bridge, so users must be … [more]

This footway has recently been cleared of overgrowth and, while not a legal cycle lane, is a very useful means of cycling between Linnards Lane and Plumley Moor Road without using the carriageway (which is quite dangerous).

This road used to be the A566 - a nasty 4-lane road that acted as a motorway junction between the M6 & M566. Now a new road has been constructed the old road has been downgraded to a 30 mph country lane making for ideal cycling conditions.

UPDATE 14 Oct 2017 #a556 #b5569 See #94537 and #94538 It's disappointing that Highways England do not know how to build a country road that prioritises vulnerable road users (on a road that is parallel to a new road that definitively … [more]

A short section of contraflow cycle lane near the station.

Is it me or does this cycle lane get narrower before giving up?

There is a cycle lane along the main Nantwich Road, but vehicles turn left at the Lights at Edleston Road, risking a collision cutting across the path.

Towers Road - a great quiet (but indirect) alternative to the 'mad mile' into Poynton from Stockport.

Shared Space Scheme - A dramatic improvement to the centre of Poynton demonstrates the effectiveness of this approach on very busy A roads.

This fatal collision somewhere along the Whitchurch Road near Aston: More detail: … [more]
