PLAQUE FOUND

The plaque which was erected in 1969 to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Co-op Ramblers  disappeared from its place at Longshaw.

The plaque referred to Alderman Ballard who founded the Co-op Ramblers in 1920.

The plaque has now been located in the Rangers workshop at Longshaw. It will be returned to its original position after the woodwork has been replaced. 

Watch this space for when the plaque will be replaced.  

It will be located at grid reference SK262792.

We have now heard from the Rangers at Longshaw. They are still carrying out work in the Ballard plantation and over the winter they have felled some more conifers, and will be planting some Hawthorns and Rowans to make the edge of the planting look more natural. There will be a forestry horse working over the next few weeks to drag out some of the timber. Next Autumn there are a few more trees to thin out along the front edge. When they have finished in that area (Spring 2019) they will replace the plaque next to the Beech tree on the corner.

At the 5th March 2020 we have had an email from the rangers at Longshaw. They have said that they are still felling trees in the area but the plaque can go back. Hopefully this will be quite soon.

 
     As this is the Centenary year for the club we have adopted a signpost from Peak and Northern Footpath Society. This signpost is situated in the Limb Valley.The commemorative plaque is expected to be in place within the next few weeks.

 

The signpost is number 478 and is situated at grid reference SK299834

The signpost has now had the plaque fixed to it.     These are the photographs of the completed sign.
