First railway trip of 2023, booked!

Happy days. That’s me booked my first railway trip of 2023. Which will take us from Grantham to Harrogate. Which will tick off one new railway station for myself and two for Bugsy.

Then we are walking the Dales Way Link – Harrogate to Ilkley. Which covers around 16 miles, should take us between 6 to 8 hours.

Then we are getting the train back from Ilkley to Grantham via Leeds. Since it was only around £8 more, we are going First Class between Leeds and Grantham. Which will be a first for Bugsy!

So looking forward to this! Plus it’s a test day for doing the rest of the Dales Way in April…

Grand Union Canal ✅

That’s me (along with Cooper and Mark G), just walked the whole of the Grand Union Canal from London to Birmingham. Which took us 16 days, but three of them, include doing the Paddington, Northampton and Slough arms.

The total distance walked, including the arms was 189.43 miles! Now to start planning our new long distance walk!! 🙂
