In his description of the Goyt Valley Frank Urry mentions climbing to Axe Edge, heading towards Dane Head, and passing the Cat and Fiddle. The illustration shows a single track which from what is today Errwood Reservoir, up to Derbyshire Bridge.Pedrocut, thanks very much for these. Regarding the Goyt Valley piece, if you read the right-hand margin of the post you will see that it was I who contributed the scans to the website owner. Having become fascinated with the Goyt Valley and what had once been (before the creation of the reservoir) a most lovely cycling haunt, I stumbled upon David Stirling's Goyt Valley website and contacted him.
As to "Wheeling Adventure," it is one of three booklets (not really full books), sponsored by Birmingham's Phillips cycle manufacturer, "Renown the World Over." At one time Phillips sold more bicycles and bicycle parts globally than Raleigh. Each booklet contains an essay as much on the glories of cycling and on F.J. Urry's past cycling experiences as it does on selecting and caring for a bicycle. They are wonderful pieces, written in Urry's lovely style, and were handed out by cycle dealers as "soft sell" pieces. The complete list of titles is "Perfection in Cycling," (1949, the first and most rare), "Wheeling Adventure," (1951), and "Salute to Cycling," (1956), the last, issued just before Urry's death. One of my copies of "Salute to Cycling" had been handed out by the famous CTC-ite and cycle dealer/builder from Hull, Cliff Pratt.
Back in October 1990 with my late friend we had a 10 mile walk from Derbyshire Bridge, across Axe Edge Moor to Dane Head and on to Three Shire Heads. From there we headed to the Cat and Fiddle, on to Errwood Reservoir and back up the Goyt Valley. The last picture I took was from more or less the same spot as the artist’s drawing!
