30/31st. August 2013 - back in the Peak District! Just walked the 30 mile Cal-Der-Went Walk from Horbury Bridge, Wakefield to Ladybower Reservoir. A lovely walk in fine weather and no walkers! I first walked it in 1980 leading a party of eight. This is for a new book of the walk originally created by Geoffrey Carr in 1978. The book will be out in mid October 2013!
September 2013 - Busy walking the Grand Union Canal from Brentford/River Thames to Birmingham - 140 miles. Now reached Braunston - 90 miles - where the Oxford Canal branches off to Oxford and the Thames.
