The morning after our canal walk into Burnley we’re back here again, on the bus from our base in Barnoldswick.
Then round the corner and across a few roads…
The legendary Burnley player is 85 now, lives in Burnley and still goes the match.
Then, going back onto the canal Sarah notices a clear notice.
At this point we go up on the bridge to see what’s around us. Finding, bizarrely, a gated community. But we also find an informative notice board about the history of the canal.
“Each section was built under separate contract, called “a cut” – look out for the boundary markers between sections.”
Walking along together. Seeing interesting and beautiful places we’ve never seen before.
It’s right next to a B&Q. And the passage between them is blocked off “at the request of B&Q.” A shopping war by the canal.
We’re averaging 8 miles a walk. so probably another six walks to do. And we’ll miss this when it’s done.
Walking across a quiet late afternoon Nelson, for the bus back to Barnoldswick. Ending, as is traditional, with Sarah’s map summarising today’s walk.
