We left Much Wenlock, just as the sun began to clear the fog and headed up to Chester. Our plans have changed, slightly due to the recent local restrictions set out in Liverpool, Stockport and Manchester we have postponed our trip to the Wirral, Stockport and Blackpool – Blackpool is not currently covered by the restrictions, but we decided to stay clear of the region.
We have stayed at Chester Fairoaks, previously but only ever as a stopover, this time we were determined to explore the area. We got the bikes off the back of Nortia, did a quick maintenance check and service, fixed the dog trailer (we seem to have lost a bolt, somewhere along the way) with a metal coat hanger twisted into shape – we will try and source something more suitable when we get somewhere suitable!
Our first trip was along the Chester Millenium Greenway to Connah’s Quay, travelling over the border again to Wales! The following day we headed along the cycle route / towpath along the Shropshire Union Canal to Chester Town. Despite being very busy, we love the city and will definately be back to view when times are less restrictive.
After Chester, we headed up to the Lake District going along the motorway, just to crunch some miles and into the Southern Lakes. Our first stop over was just outside Grange-over-Sands at Meathorp Fell. We took a short 6 mile stroll into Grange and along Grange Promenade, stopping for a lovely ice-cream opposite the Station.
From Meathop Fell, we travelled slightly north to Coniston and the Caravan and Motorhome Club Site at Coniston Coppice. We took a stroll into the town of Coniston, stopping for a cup of tea along the way, before walking back along the lake to the campsite.
We’ve got a few more days here, so find out what we got up to in our next installment. As always, thank you for reading and we hope you’re all sae and well….
