Hello. Well we were picked up this morning, me and the other walker, and were taken back to the B & B for our breakfast, and I was on my way just after 9am. No mizzle today, didn't need to wear my jacket, it was quite warm. Flowers outside the Magistrates Court.
The lake in front of it is nice.
The better side of it is round the back.
As I was heading out of Chorley just over the railway bridge was this pub. Next I walked over the M61 motorway and picked up the A674.
A mile later I was striking off right on a minor road which took me through Brinscall, Withnell, and Abbey Village, towards Darwen. Then I joined a path to take me past Roddlesworth Reservoir, There are such a lot of paths in the area I got a bit confused, and asked for directions from a couple walking their two dogs. It was easier just to follow them as they were going in the same direction. Maxine and Chris were great, I was very slow at climbing a steep bank through a wood with lots of huffing and puffing, and Chris took my backpack off me. They invited me to join them for a drink when we reached the pub on the roadside. I do meets some nice people on my travels.
Over there in the distance is The Tower on Darwen Hill. I didn't go over there, I had already dawdled enough so I thought it best to get on.
Sunnyhurst Hey Reservoir came into view
Here we are in Darwin. I came down a steep road, blimey how do people cpoe going up and down this street.
This is a public footpath which goes down someone's driveway to their house.
Aha, at last a sign.
It's looking like there will be some road walking tomorrow as that seems to be the easiest route. I'll get off now, and hopefully catch you tomorrow.
