Started about 9am for a ‘potter’ around. The day was windy and cold. I soon reached Four Lane Ends, then Atherton, and the lanes to Glazebury. From here, the inevitable Chat Moss road brought me to Rixton, then over Warburton Bridge to Heatley. I was now feeling like lunch, so I made my way via various bylanes to Millington, where, at Boothbank, I had lunch. Restarting I wandered to Rostherne, then bylanes to Mere Corner, and more bylanes to a private road from Hoo Green. Without compunction, I followed this out through private grounds, emerging on the High Legh – Budworth road.
Half a mile nearer High Legh, I turned into more byways, where a rainstorm came on. My cape was now necessary, and it proved so for the rest of the afternoon. I wandered to Arley, round by Swineyard Hall, and by many other lanes in the gathering dusk to Poplar Farm on the Warrington – Knutsford road, where, in the congenial company of a club, I had tea. I had now some trouble to get my gas lamp going, and the road to High Legh was marked by continual stoppages. At Broom Edge, I gave it a thorough clean-out, then made my way to Warburton, where my cape once again came out. At Glazebrook, I put it away again, and returned home at 9.30. 94 miles
