More new ground

Continuing our foray into pastures new we have come down Johnsons Hillock locks and are now heading through Chorley toward the gruelling Wigan flight. Johnssons Hillock are interesting because they were built by the Douglas Canal company and do have a different feel to the flights up the Yorkshire end. Also there is the now disused link to the Lancaster summit at the bottom of the flight. All in all and interesting and very pretty run through from Burnley. I think everyone thinks of this as an ugly industrial area and they are so wrong. The views are stunning and the trip is a really good one.
