Digitalising Historic Correspondence

Linda Smith, Footpath Inspector, Cheshire West

This article is from Signpost 67, Spring 2021

I would like to congratulate the team that has been busy digitising historic correspondence relating to public rights of way in our various parishes - David Brown, Jeff Coulson Graham Smith, Geoff Jones and Paul Easthope.  This must have been a mammoth task, but it is essential that we are able to track past correspondence from the Highways Authorities and other parties when it comes to dealing with long-standing or difficult issues on our paths.  I have been assessing outstanding issues on some of my own routes and it was useful to look back to gather any relevant history.  I would urge others to look at the resource HERE and contribute to it with copies of your own key correspondence (to David at   Acceptable file formats are PDF, JPG and TXT.  The name of any file should start with the date in the format YYYY-MM-DD).
