Long Description:
This milestone is on national cycle route 67, which covers the east and central part of the Trans Pennine Trail which connects Southport on the west coast of England with Hornsea on the east coast. At this point the trail is following a section of the former Chesterfield Canal towpath.

SUSTRANS is an organisation that promotes the use of cycles as a green form of transport. A national network of cycle routes is being developed in conjunction with local councils. Wherever possible the routes avoid roads, but in some places have to share the road network.

As part of the millennium celebrations 1000 mileposts were installed at various positions throughout the whole SUSTRANS network.

Sustrans commissioned four artists from the four countries of the United Kingdom to design cast iron ‘Millennium Mileposts’, but each design was spread throughout the network rather than being only installed in the country of birth of the artist.

This Welsh Style milepost was designed by Andrew Rowe and is based upon the nautical and industrial heritage of his native Swansea.
