Leg 20 – 25th July
Starting at Wainlode Hill Norton and Ending at Clevelode
The Days Journey
Leg 20! 17 miles 475 feet
327 miles walked in total, so far!
This is a journey into ……. pubs.
We are making every effort ( as tough as it is ) to visit as many public houses as possible. We tend to reward ourselves, for example, if we hit 10 before 12 we are allowed a pint in the last few miles, today was no exception but the pub was.
We ended up at the Three Kings Inn at Hanley Castle. What a find, like going back 20 years the landlady was second or third generation who had lived there all her life. No food was on offer but ok to bring your own, so we opened the last butty we had. Looking round a local guy came in and topped up the sale shelf, pickled eggs, chutney’s all sorts of local grown homemade items.
They have music on each week from Friday lunch time, bring an instrument or your voice. Tthe cider was from a box, the Ales were from around the country, even Poulton-Le-Fylde. Just superb, but alas after two and starting to get too comfy we had to crack on. Such a joy to meet local people who were genuinely being nice.
What a country.
All excited now; two days off, the Clarets are in Europe and I have a ticket and flights booked.
Ps some of the music requests were how do I put this ok………. crap! So keep them coming. Sorry, Dawn, but not the proclaimers NO!!!!!! Xxxx as much as I love you NO!

PPPS if I ever have the urge to do this again I am doing it on a Honda C90 what a road trip!
Track of the day and it’s mine!!
