Distance 3 miles

A nice day so I had a wonder around Wheelton and on the Leeds Liverpool canal. Please note these photo's were taken with my mobile phone so are of a lesser quality than normal


Young canoeists undertaking training

Looking back to the canoeists


Whins Lane - this was the main Chorley to Blackburn road until the 1960's when a landslide meant a new road had to be built


The place where the landslide occurred. This has made Whins Lane and Wheelton much quieter as a by pass was built around the village


Having reached the other side of the landslip, this is nearing Wheelton village


The view down Blackburn Road to the Post Office and Red Lion


Nearing the end of my walk. This is Victoria Street looking towards the steps to the Village Hall
