Mid November .. 'Penny engine lane' .. Eckington.

The 'Moss valley' into which this trail extends.. was at one time a thriving industrial community with water powered mills and coal mines. This particular lane carried a light railway.. to aid the industries..and on which locals would pay a penny to take a ride on the train... Hence the name...''Penny engine lane''
