A big change in the weather this morning. Steady drizzle with some heavier downpours actually came as a refreshing change. 23 miles done with some real change in scenery. The walk down into Ribchester was typical of the rolling countryside of the last few days. Then a big change through the outskirts of Blackburn and on through the suburbs of Chorley. Lunch was in Pleasington, which was pleasant as the name suggests.
Commiserations to Liverpool (my team). It won’t quite be the same when we walk through on Friday. “You’ll never walk alone” seems very apt for what I’m doing just now.
Finally some contrasting photos; the beautiful Pleasington Priory, and the not so beautiful M6. And if I needed a reminder that we are in Lancashire this pub sign should do nicely.
One thought on “Day 32: Wednesday 18th May”
Glad you’re enjoying Lancashire. Researching my family tree, I find that I have a relative who turned out for Bolton Wanderers and was also a clog maker and educationalist in Wigan. In fact he has a school named after him, Abraham Guest.
You’re making very good time, Chris, keep it up!
