Some biscuits were then made, with Isabella showing off her chef's apron and hat.

Click here for BC's report.
Click here for the report on my previous visit on 21 September 2016.
It was great to see BC (aka John), and his mate JD (aka John) on this second walk on my programme of Friday morning outings. The objective was to complete the walk described (number 23) in Mark Sutcliffe's 'Walking in Lancashire' Cicerone guide.
Mark's walk starts from Hurst Green village hall. I didn't spot that, but a little way up Avenue Road the Aighton, Bailey and Chaigley Memorial Hall provided a suitable alternative, particularly as BC's car was just behind me and followed me in.

But a week later, it was still cold, but windless and sunny, so Sue and I hit the towpath on our bikes without any fear of skidding on ice.
