Sunday, 4 October 1924 Millington

Having neglected the club a little, lately, I decided to honour them with my presence (?) and so, I rolled off to Four Lane Ends for 2.30pm.  We started at 3pm, about fourteen strong, and from Atherton we sped off to Butts Bridge and Glazebury.  Then the usual – Chat Moss, Rixton and over the Warburton [Bridge].  The bylane took us across the Altrincham – Lymm road, depositing us at Millington for tea.  Tom was there with his Manchester friend (Frank), and as it was yet early, we had a game of football in an adjacent field.  Tea followed, a merry affair, then another game of football, and the club started to trickle homewards.  We had a chat with Frank, (with whom I toured in 1923) and he promised to join our party tomorrow.

I returned with Tom and Bill via Rostherne, Ashley, and Castle Mill to Ringway.  We got the other Bill – who is not yet experienced in bylanes, in a maze.  Then Styal, or rather Moss Nook, to Cheadle, where he left us.  Scorning Kingsway, we took the old road to the suburbs, then via monotonous streets to Tom’s place for the night.  We intend to go over the footpath between Hayfield and the Snake Inn – tomorrow!                             48 miles
