Located on the Daw End Branch canal, near the old railway bridge at the back of the brickworks. Spotted a few months ago, but broached again last week by The Stymaster, what on earth is going on here?
A newly-laid, shale and timber path dives off the canal towpath, and circumnavigates a thicket. Skirting the brickworks fence, it returns up a well made set of steps, and rejoins the towpath 10 metres further on. The length of the path? Probably less than 20 metres.
The equipment to build it seems to have come from the brickworks, as barriers and the like are lying the other side of the palisade fence.
I have no idea. Very nice, but a whole bunch of effort, apparently without any point whosoever. Unless any readers know better?
