Received from Mike
Since retiring in Jan14 I decided that to ensure I didn’t spend the next few months deciding how to plan to be busy , my mission would be to walk the entire BCN network asap.
I commenced on 19 March taking photos of all structures on route and the odd swans nest!!
Using National Express and Arriva bus timatables getting to all points is organised with military precision. I try and trip once a week, the last one incorporated Coseley tunnel on the non towpath side and got a good drenching to boot.
I still have 50% to do and its a fabulous way to keep fit and glory at the unfolding canalscape.
I own a share on a narrowboat . I live in Codsall married with two sons and three grandchildren.
(Webslave’s note – I have asked Mike to send in some of his photographs and items of general interest)
