Furness Vale turn right.

Yesterday we went out for a walk even though it was raining gently. We walked up to the road bridge which took us up over the railway crossing, up station road and into the village.

We walked past The Crossings Pub and turned right at the T Junction.

In the village there is another hostelry The Soldier Dick Hotel which opened in 2011 after extensive work. There is also a Fish and Chip Shop, Post Office and Church.

The views across the Goyt Valley are stunning.

My photographs do not do it justice sadly.

Having walked to the end of the village we followed a footpath which took us to the other side of the railway.

I was hoping a steam train would come thundering along the track at this point, but no such luck.

Fabulous view towards New Mills.

We walked back along the towpath and met up with Chas & Ann on NB Moore2Life, and Geoff and Mags on NB Seyella moored near Carr Swing bridge. We had a brief chat with them before they set off for Marple.

Just a bit further up the moorings was NB Shelley Anne. I knocked on the boat and was greeted by Sarah-May who runs Baddie the Pirate a place for all your lighting needs. Sarah-May was just setting off with friends to cruise to Disley, so we hope to catch up with her at some point before we head back to Braunston for our Fridge/Freezer. It was a day of catching up with people we knew and this included Stewart on Historic working boat Ann. He was heading into Whaley Bridge.

After a refreshing stroll, it was back to the boat for lunch and an afternoon of sea faring films on Channel 5.
