Superb new walking and cycling bridge installed to allow access to the former railway tunnel. One wooden bollard at the entrance, so anyone can get through. Excellent.

The newly restored former railway tunnel, with a great surface and interior lighting.

Reflectors mark the edge of the cycleway.

A vastly improved surface exists here now.

Once only hikers and mountain bikers used this route. Now anyone can - even horse riders!

Superb surface here and nice detail on the [presumed] footpath to the left.

This was once a muddy slippery slope, now it's an all-weather sealed surface ideal for cycling.

A superb sealed surface now exists north of Lumb Viaduct.

A nice cycleway parallel to Bacup Road. Unfortunately it ends not far past this point.

A nice cycleway here, unfortunately it leads back onto the main road but not far after that you can get back onto the cycleway and use two former railway tunnels.

One of two former railway tunnels that Lancashire County Council have reopened and converted into cycleways. This is absolutely excellent work. My only very minor concern is the risk of ice during winter.

The picture says it all. Superb.

Newly restored tunnel. Amazing job.

Great surface on this new cycleway.

Good crossing point here, although the red surface is wearing quickly. Nice to see that the usual "krypton factor" barriers have not been used here, just plain bollards.

Superb surface here.

This barrier is a little bit wide but most cyclists should be easily capable of getting around it. I would have preferred a removable bollard, since some people on unusual bikes, or disabled folk, might struggle here.

Billiard-table smooth surface. Perfect.

No silly barriers here, just sensible bollards and a visible change in surface to indicate that you're crossing a road.

Great surface on this cycleway. Image taken from a very worn old footbridge.

Very picturesque views along the former railway here.

Great surface on the former railway here. Just a shame that behind the photographer, the path turns up to the main road. It would be better if the route went behind the factory and onto Station Road.

It's easy to cycle through these bollards - unlike the old metal barriers south of here, which are extremely difficult to navigate.

Superb recycled rubber surface here. A little bit rippled but I'm not complaining.
