The weather this week has been bleak and miserable but I’m full of energy and wanted to do something on my day off that was a bit more than the usual shopping and cleaning but that wouldn’t break the bank. I decided to go for a walk down the canal. I started at a point that’s quite near my home and set off in the direction of Leeds city centre. It’s not the most scenic route. It’s far nicer walking the other way as you can see on my travel blog (link below). That way if you walk for 127 miles you get to Liverpool on the west coast.
The mile walk to the city centre would have once given you all the mills the city was famous for but now it’s mostly broken up by the train station, hotels and businesses. There’s even now a thriving bar/restaurant section. So not as pretty as the other direction but it was good to get out of the house, blow away some mental cobwebs and get a bit of exercise.
