Another trip into the wolds
The roads in the Wolds have very few name boards, even in the small villages. We found a few new, small residential roads that we had either missed before or were new. One thing I did see, which is worth following up on another visit, is the newly signed National Cycle Network trails. I understand that some of the existing NCN trails are having some sections renumbered where there are optional or alternative routes. This however is a newly designated route which I have yet to follow properly.
One of the roads that show up on the OS Locator tiles was Cobdale Lane. Like most of the roads is the area I wasn't expecting to find an hint of the road name, but I was wrong. The name started at a bend in the road and a pleasant cottage was set on the dip and turn in the road. The name of the cottage was Cobdale Cottage. A few hundred metres futher down the road there was Cobdale Farm too. Maybe the road name is Cobdale Lane as suggested.
