New marker post on Lancashire / Yorkshire border

The Friends of Real Lancashire, one of our affiliated groups, invite you to attend the unveiling ceremony for a new marker post on 22 March 2015 and say:


Walkers on the Pennine Way near Oldham will from this week know when they are crossing the Lancashire / Yorkshire border! A marker post made from local stone will be erected on Bleakedgate Moor, close to Readycon Hill and accessed from the A672. It will represent the most easterly point of Lancashire.

The Friends of Real Lancashire have commissioned J. Child & Son Ltd of Bury Road, Rochdale to prepare the stone and inscribe the appropriate roses on the post. It will be unveiled at 3pm on Sunday 22 March by Debbie Abrahams MP who although was born in Yorkshire, proudly represents the Oldham East and Saddleworth constituency and whose husband John Abrahams played cricket for Lancashire!
