Walk To Lostock

Nice walk along the Trent and Mersey Canal yesterday for a change. Past the steamy TATA works and the frozen puddles on the tow path. Saw a heron and a single magpie. Popped into the crumbling antique shop to chat to the eccentric proprietor who sold Hazel a green glass medicine bottle and thermometer. Much of his other wares were rather expensive. Nice pile of old 60's signed pop group photos but he wanted 50 quid. Home again with the sun in our eyes avoiding the dog poop and the melting mud puddles!
