With the Duddon Fell Race to do the following day I should have been resting. Anyway it turned into a 14mile walk all told. I took these nice pictures of the canal and surrounding area.
Badger on the newly surfaced towpath.
To be honest allthough the towpath is nice its made it a bit to good for my liking. I prefered it when it was a bit rougher terrain, but now at least the powers that be have made it properly accessable for disabled people. Instead of just putting a few disabled friendly stiles along the route, they have done a brillinat job. I will be writing to the powers that be to thank them.
The end of the canal where it joins the River Trent. The River Soar is to the left of this shot. If I had a few thousand to spare I would have a narrowboat and certainly be making use of the many moorings available long the cut.
Badger and his newly clipped coat which I did myself. Thats another story.
This one is called the Molly Grace. think my boat would have to be called Fellrunner.
