On a wet Thursday morning Julia Pearson, chairperson of the Friends of A Dales High Way, led a party of volunteers up onto Shipley Glen to erect the first dedicated Dales High Way fingerpost along the route.
The spot is at a split in the path, which sometimes causes confusion for walkers on the trail.
The fingerpost had been prepared at Bradford Council's Countryside workshop in Shipley, with the help of Countryside rangers there. But the routing of the sign was undertaken by Julia herself - and what a great job she's done!

Julia said: "I'm really pleased to have been able to help make such a smart sign for the early stages of A Dales High Way. I hope DHW walkers find it helpful and that other walkers are inspired to explore the route. Thanks to the BEES volunteers for digging a very deep hole, then filling it in again!"
The volunteers from Bradford Environmental Education Service soon had a three-foot deep hole dug into the hard, rocky ground, and the post was firmly installed. Well done guys and many thanks!
