Woohoo! Finished! Last section was done by Lunchtime.
8 miles today brings my overall total up to about 160 miles. Not bad for a summer’s work.

14 miles – so a shorter day, and a much shotrer one lined up for tomorrow. Paths were good and the weather was very nice indeed. I want to sleep.

Grand Union Canal – Long Buckby to Stockton

Follow-up to Grand Union Canal – Rothersthorpe to Long Buckby from Garden, House, Walking, Other...

16.9 miles today. (On 4 hours sleep as well)
Footpath quality on the first stretch was terrible and then after that I got to the sign saying that part of the towpath was closed as it was too dangerous, so I did a long diversionincluding lots of nettles and the A45. I was off the towpath for most of the afternoon as well as my guide suggested the paths would be bad and gave a very nice alternate route through farmland.
I’m exhausted now!

Grand Union Canal – Wolverton to Rothersthorpe

Follow-up to Grand union Canal – Fenny Stratford to Wolverton from Garden, House, Walking, Other...

13/8 – Wolverton station to Rothershthorpe (for bus link to Northampton)
Weather fine, path quality excellent
14.7 miles is a fairly impressive stint really – and I didn’t notice that it was that long. Went off canal at two points – the first was a diversion due to towpath repairs, the second was at the Blisworth tunnel where there is no towpath as the canal goes under the hill for two miles.

9.7 miles and minimal ascent proves that it’s sunlight that tires me out and not the walking itself.
I’m so gonna overheat in rome!
