Haskayne to Melling  –  25th January 2018

Today’s walk began with a No. 300 bus ride to Haskayne where we joined the canal to make our way South towards our destination for this leg in Melling. Showers were forecast, but we started off in sunshine. We were serenaded by a frog band on the early part of the walk and we passed the canalside Snaffles Cafe too soon for a tea break. Pity – it has rave reviews. We passed through Continue reading
