A good few days walk for them. I hope the weather was kind to them and they enjoyed the joys of the canals along the way.

Its always surprising who you meet along the canal bank.
Boaters, Walkers, and Bikers all are happy to stop and have a chat, its only the Fishermen who are not very friendly.

Canals were made for barges not for fishermen who discard fishing line and hooks that kill swans and ducks.
