Todays hike took us by car to our last point at Congleton railway station we followed the canal out of Congleton and headed by various set paths and walks on old railways via Rudyard Lake to Leek where we will resume next Friday week and walk on from Leek to Illam. That becomes the start of the set pilgrimage the second weekend in September taking us in 39 miles over three days to Eyam. In all we'll have done about 78 miles which is a lot short of the 120 I did last year from Cumbria to Cheshire and so far a much more relaxed walk, my training was zero this time and my special athletic diet- cake and ice cream. It was misty to start but warmed up and came out sunny at Rudyard lake, the 7.25" gauge railway wasn't running despite saying 'trains today', perhaps it kicked off in the afternoon. One long stretch and passing loop as far as I could see.
I'm still on with the DVD editing, I've Kiev trams/trolleys and trucks to do that's four volumes then I also want to get the Lymm trucks sorted from yesterday. I hope to be up to date with everything listed this weekend before East Anglia. I need to get the walk photos ready for a display at St Oswalds on Sunday morning to encourage people top join the main event. Tonights photos start with today's walk from Congleton to Leek.
