Doghill to Steanor Bottom Turnpike

The Turnpike Trust of 1777 was empowered to construct or improve roads from Doghill (Dean Head) to Todmorden and whilst the completion date is unclear, the road was completed by 1786. The suggested opening date of 1785 may just refer to the section between Doghills and Steanor Bottom. The road was controversially abandoned as a through route being retained only as a footway.
