    Hello Graeme. Wow, you are most fortunate that you can get onto the Trans-Pennine trail easily, I would love to be back in Lancashire to ride that. What canals are you riding, and what nature reserves do you hit?

    By the way, I was born in Swinton...

    Welcome to BF!

    Have you seen any animals or birds of interest at Pickerings Pasture? It sounds fascinating.
