Lancaster Canal - Newsham to Blackleach

Thursday 21st February 2013

An uneventful section in good weather, slightly less gloopy mud, and a bitterly cold wind.

Start and finish at Hollowforth. Direction clockwise. Motorway at bottom is  M55 Preston/Blackpool

Barton Brook

Moon Bridge Marina with swing bridge which seems to have little reason for existence

Moon Bridge under repair. Traffic had been diverted and the narrow country lane from Cuddy Hill to Hollowforth on our return was chaotically busy with traffic

Woodplumpton Brook

Approaching Marina/café/chandlers at Swillbrook

It all looked a bit quiet here. We walked on leaving the canal at the next bridge a few hundred yards further on

Phew! I'm glad the previous day's longer walk didn't appear to set your knee back too badly!
Well done, and here's to another hot bath...

message from the south-east:
' what is that bright light shining in all these photographs?'

phreerunner - I put it down to the brownies.


Gimmer - not sure what you mean. They look ok to me.
