Motorbike Inhibitors Buxworth

Motorbike Inhibitor BuxworthThe photographs show the motorbike inhibitor gate at Buxworth Basin. 

The path is accessible from the Navigation Inn at Buxworth to the Chinley/Whitehough to Chapel Road. A pleasant path along Black Brook.

The motorbike inhibitor gate is inaccessible to wheel chair users, as the gate measurements are:


  • a) The bottom of the gate is 890 mm (just wide enough for a manual wheelchair which measures 650 mm);
  • b) The depth of the gate is 800 mm;
  • c) The middle/guide measures 580 mm, and thus is too narrow for a wheelchair user or someone using crutches to pass through.
