Turn Right At Liverpool And Keep Walking- Day 123 Sunderland To North Shields: 1 August 2020.

It was a long day today, I caught the 4:00am bus from Stockport into town. That was ridiculously early as I had an hour to wait at Piccadilly for the 6:27 to Huddersfield and Newcastle. 1,239 more words

The Weardale Way, Day 7

Gill and I decided it was time to take the bull by the horns and get back to the Weardale Way last week.  For some reason neither of us can quite work out, we only managed to tackle one stretch last year but this was one we’d both been looking forward to – ten miles or so alongside the meandering, lowland river from Hunwick back to Shincliffe.  838 more words

Turn Right At Liverpool And Keep Walking- Day 122 – Horden To Sunderland : 24th July 2020

I wish I had sussed Gatley station earlier, ample parking, early and direct trains. They are getting a little more busy now as people are venturing out a little more, there were perhaps 15 people in my carriage at one point, and coming back from Sunderland to Middlesbrough, there was hardly a seat to be had. 1,218 more words

Caught an almost direct train this morning. Who knew there was a train from Gatley to Redcar, easy parking, near to home and as usual in these strange days empty. 1,215 more words
