The promise of a day without rain was enough to inspire a trip along the Ashton Canal and catching the tram back. Heading out from the Piccadilly end of Manchester it’s just shy of 7 miles to the tram stop at Ashton.
Not sure just where I exceeded seven miles an hour on the gentle climb upwards. At the Ashton end the canal joins the Peak Forest canal – a section of which was part of the previous stroll. Perhaps I’ll venture down this section next time.
