I can now add Ealing Broadway and Slough, to the list of railway stations, that I’ve used!
I met up with my friend Mark T (not not my house mate, this is another Mark), who got a LNER train service from, King’s Cross at 1:06pm, which got into Grantham at 2:19pm. Then we got the East Midlands Trains, which left Grantham at 2:27 and got us in Skegness at around 4:56pm.
Then we had a good walk around, took many photos, had some food before getting the 6:14pm service back to Grantham. Then we waited around at Grantham rail station, till Mark’s next train to London, which turned up at 8:19pm.
We had so much fun! Already planning our next railway trip!
That’s me just walked another canal, this time the Nottingham and Beeston canal.

On the way back from Scotland, I stopped off at the Tan Hill Inn, which is the is the highest inn in the British Isles at 1,732 feet (528 metres) above sea level. I bet, it would be a great place to cycle to!!
