thats an amazing coincidence , I was on a project too, my project was to' pie on here' the venue as a new regular cycling route for our group, The wherethefucarewe cycling club, So named because we often get lost, I was in full lycra uniform with helmet, wrap round glasses and face mask, So you probably would not recognize me

I have been in them parts too today, I have been too Vulcan village, too see if it was still there clown

Doo yoo remember Sankey Sugar, well if yoo had stopped on the canal trail, yoo would have come to the site of the old Sankey Sugar works Smile


http://www.newtonheritagetrail.com/muckie-mountains

When yoo came off the trail, and on to the main road, which is called Common Road, that becomes Crow Lane West, then at the traffic lights turn left on to Vista Road, at the other end of which is Haydock, turn right and the yoo are back in Ashton.

I find people in those parts, Earlestown, Wargrave, Vulcan, Winwick, and the other way down Common Road towards Burtonwood and St Helens, a damn sight more pleasant than what they are here in Wigan .....

Tom, you start at Stanley Bank, to the old mill, then you turn left on the canal to the Ship Inn.   Next, you emerge from the sugar works end, from the opposite direction, and turn right up Common Brow.   How did you get there?

Anyroadup, at 12:20 on your film, you're on the East Lancs. and pass a building on your left called Handepay.  Guess who made and fitted all the blinds to all those windows?  Very Happy

today I extended that ride to Winwick and found out, after you go through the Sankey Valley you can get on the Peninie route or the Mersey route and bike/walk to your hearts content

a stage further, today I took it a stage further into the warrington area, birchwood, penketh, gemini too many paths with no signage I was going round and round and the sun made it hard to read my 'maps' from the screen but, I had a good 4 hour ride in car free paths and trails,

yes indeed and once you get into the Eileen Billton project estates, there a mix of industry ,commerce and domestic estates all with country parks between them all joined up with absolutely loads of cycling paths which from there you can go to the Mersey estuary , Runcorn, widnes and beyond, Without my 'Maps' app, I would still be there looking for the way out,
