An email dropped into my box –
Longridge to the Sea – East.
Following the OS line 38. I have had a quick look and it appears more or less possible. Straight line 104 miles and interesting – certainly a lot of new territory for me. Conrad. [Sir Hugh to those familiar with ths blog]
I ignored this for a day or so thinking it was too ambitious and I had better things to do; like finish off the GR131 in the Canary Islands and complete my protracted Land’s End to John o’Groats. But the idea gnawed at the back of my mind and I foolishly looked up the maps. The SD 38 latitude in question runs virtually past my house. My mind was in action now, why not start on the west coast and finish on the east 122 straight miles Blackpool to Aldbrough.
