Quite a few ups and downs today, along the road. The area of Alum Scar is very little visited, even to this day. Tucked away in a quiet area of unmarked countryside, it is a little gem. Look on your maps for Samlesbury Bottoms and follow the East direction. Our hero was very fortunate to have a volunteer repair his puncture whilst he himself took tea. Nice work if you can get it.
I must say that all of Charlie’s travels are peppered with punctures, which just goes to show that today’s tyres are much better at keeping out unwanted visitors.
