Building the network.
NATIONAL CYCLE NETWORK:
In 1995 Sustrans were granted money from the Millennium Lottery Fund to create the National Cycle Network.
If you look at the map of it below you will see there is a section that has not been completed and that 'missing link' is Cannock Chase!
There is no such group as the 'Chase Rangers' really. We're just a few Staffordshire Rangers (Dave, Jean, Bob, Paul and Mike) who are looking into the possibility of getting the 'missing link' of NCN 5 completed across Cannock Chase. It's well overdue and needs to be completed sooner rather than later!
While we wait for the 'missing link' of NCN 5 to be completed we are trying to extend NCN 5 from Stafford to Brocton at the north end of the link and from Chasewater to Prospect Village at the south end of the link.
The 'NCN 5 missing link' is around 16 miles long.
It's between NCN 5 at Weeping Cross in Stafford & NCN 5 at Chasewater in Burntwood.
The 'missing link' is shown as a dashed red line in the map below.
