Peak District and Northern Counties Footpaths Preservation Society

Peak District and Northern Counties Footpaths Preservation Society
The Peak District and Northern Counties Footpaths Preservation Society was founded in Manchester in 1894. It evolved from The Manchester Association for the Preservation of Ancient Public Footpaths of 1826. It is the oldest surviving regional footpath society in the UK. This sign is dated 1908 and the society continues to erect signposts across the region when it considers one to be necessary, often at difficult path junctions in open country.

An interesting brief history of the Society can be found here:
