DAY 14 – 15th July 2022
Rivington to Parbold – 30 miles
Stages 12 to 7 (S12 to S7).
A long hard day with lots of canal towpath walking. I was tempted by several shortcuts but managed to stick to the route proper the whole day. There were several possible shortcuts
- Straight from Rivington across to Adlington
- Miss out Haigh Hall and continue along the canal to Top Lock
- At Gathurst continue along the canal towards Parbold and pick up Stage 6 at Bridge 40 just before the climb up to Parbold Hill.
- On the descent from the Ashurst’s Beacon miss out the section to Newburgh and continue straight down the hill to Bridge 40 on the Leeds Liverpool canal
I live in Parbold so could walk home at the end of the day. It was a long 10 minutes walk at the end of the day.
Again the photos do not do this day justice! Too focused on finishing the day!
