Untitled[edit]

This page has been marked for deletion and I'm not sure why Reason given was:

"a footpath is not notable, unless it has some sort of notable history or significance or something"

However; I see no distiinction between this 'official waymark route' footpath, trail etc. (with it's own distinctive waymark no less) and other walks in the UK and documented in Wikipedia

Example

Baker Way or other walks listed in Recreational_walks_in_Cheshire or many of the other 'UK County' specific recreational walk pages

It does have 'history' in that if follows peat extraction routes. It has publications related to it and is listed on the LDWA and Forestry Commision site. The original intention of creating this page was to add to the Bennachie page

However if it has to go - fine If it has to be much improved to the standard of others - then we can only try

It's likely due to
  1. the initial form of the article was very light on content
  2. the person who suggested {{afd}} was not familiar with the trail
Those are kind of dangerous to a new article. The more you can pump in there to show notability, the better. A map, a trail length (with reference), number of users/year (or day!), etcetra, will help. - Denimadept (talk) 17:08, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Suggested model article to use[edit]

Appalachian Trail - Denimadept (talk) 17:08, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Real problems[edit]

The "route" paragraph is directly lifted (plagiarism!) from the one source. You need more sources, and to reword that paragraph. - Denimadept (talk) 21:43, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
