July 27, 2007
8.2 miles and minimal ascent made a very easy day of walking.
26/7 – Tring Station to Leighton Buzzard station.
11.3 miles and minimal ascent.
Weather – showery in the morning but fairly heavy for the last three miles or so. I say fairly heavy because it wasn’t a patch on last week but still managed to soak me!
I discovered my purpose in life was startling ducks.
After the walk, and with horrific blisters built up over the week I hobbled over to baker street and spent £100 on shoes. The shoe shop assistants were bemused that I decided to buy shoes that made me limp when I was trying them on!

A short one today – only 9.6 miles.
Weather – mostly fine with occasional showers in the afternoon
Path Quality good
Had lunch in a pub in berkhamsted to escape one of the showers and saw this pretty building afterwards.

23/7 – Southall Station to Denham Station
11.8 miles, minimal ascent (4 locks plus bridges and a small hill at the end!)
Weather – Dry but cloudy throughout. Path quality good.
Bulls Bridge – where my route joined the Grand Union Main Branch
22/7 – London Paddington Station to Southall Station, following the Grand Union Canal
13 miles, negligible ascent
Weather – Fine to a little on the warm side. Path quality generally good – a little muddy in places, but surprisingly dry given the state of britain at the moment!
