|Comments:||This walk was planned to pass the time while my car was being serviced at Bowker Blackburn BMW. It started off well but then there were a few problems. At Dunscar Farm two gates linked together with a large herd of cows next to them blocked the footpath and I had to find an alternative route. With lush undergrowth some of the footpaths were difficult to navigate and the route from Blackburn Old Road to Lower Side Beet was non existent!!|
Leeds Liverpool canal . . .
provides a peaceful way to travel
The undergrowth on this narrow path . . .
makes walking difficult . . .
as it reaches 6 feet tall!!
New waymarkers - but where was the footpath?
A canada goose gathering . . .
where one seems to be in charge . . .
and tries to warn me away
