Bridgewater Canal Memories

Today's (not)parkrun took place before it was properly light, so no photos from that, and because of the current restrictions due to the relentlessly ongoing Covid pandemic it was best to meet by Zoom, rather than at the park today. It was cold out, and running was great, as the muddy sections had all gone satisfactorily hard.

But not as hard as on 8 January 2010, when the above picture was taken on the canal near Dunham Massey. We had walked nearly all the way there on the surface of the canal, which was much easier than the snowy towpath. We persuaded this cyclist to follow our example, and so he did, finding cycling on the canal surface much easier than on the uneven towpath.

Happy Days!

No, the ice was inches thick.
