I wouldn't agree here. Even if your pub patrons wouldn't call it a
trailhead it is one. The TPT purposely makes a detour to the South to
meet Chesterfield station.
Isn't the trail mapped in OSM?) It might not have a big signpost "here
be trails" but it meets the consensus definition of a trailhead, namely
giving easy access to a trail. On top it even has an information board,
parking, rail station, toilets in the station, pub up the road, ... It's
quite a posh trailhead actually ( :-) to use some other participant's
The position of the new board you mapped is not the trailhead, though.
