Walk Buxworth and Sparrowpit 26/02/2017

Phil W. led a walk from Buxworth Canal Basin to Sparrowpit return. The published distance was 8 miles but many of us clocked over 11. A nice day to start but it deteriorated, very muddy, windy and slippy underfoot caused us to modify original route and use more lanes and minor roads on our return. 12 of us set out then after a mile we gained 2 more and 2 dogs then 2 turned back, 12 of us and 2 dogs did the whole day.

Funny looking chickens at Bagshaw Hall farm. The owners flouting U.K. Gov advice to keep them cooped.
