It’s Easter Weekend.
There are reports of huge queues of traffic on some roads near us as day-trippers head to the coast.
So what better place to escape to this morning than our local stretch of the Lancaster Canal.
Two minutes into the walk, we came across a sign: TOWPATH CLOSED. Oh dear! It looked like being a very short walk indeed.
We could see under the bridge that the towpath reopened at the other side. A good chunk of that side of the bridge had been demolished by a car (or maybe a lorry or even a tractor, but probably not a bicycle!) crashing into it.
A quick inspection of the underside of this narrow little bridge gave us the confidence to run through to the other side, reasonably sure that we wouldn’t be buried under falling masonry. And without hard hats! Not that those would have been much good if we’d been buried alive.
Once through the bridge, the remainder of the 6 km walk was as beautiful and peaceful and interesting as ever.
