ULVERSTON. A Dickens Of A Day out.

Right, so where was I? This is the follow on from the post about my coffee and teacake in Arnside. ( There will be a link thing at the bottom for that. ) After that quick refuelling it was down to the station at Arnside and onto the train to Ulverston. On a side note, this is a really attractive train journey, travelling as it does around the top edge […]

LLANDUDNO. Onward to the Seaside!

Okay, bear with me a moment. A couple of posts ago I was working through a day trip into North Wales, to Conwy and on to Llandudno. I’d posted about Conwy and my walk around the town and its walls. Then I’d posted on L’s the Cafe cum bookshop and the excellent bacon roll I’d eaten there. Important thing a good bacon roll, blogging is hard work you know. I’d […]

For part of the route the railway runs alongside the Peak Forest Canal to Whaley Bridge, that makes it useful for a day walking the canal. Train out and […]

By the way, I had a bite to eat at Samuels, its just off the Square, you pass it as you’re coming from Hamilton Square station. It’s a nice and cosy place, great breakfasts and lunches. It’s on my list ( I have a little list etc ) I […]

BIRKENHEAD. On Hamilton Square.

Standing proudly by the River Mersey is the town of Birkenhead, though not perhaps as well known as Liverpool, its over the water neighbour, it does have many an interesting corner and a history all of it’s own. I hadn’t been over that way for a little while so I freed up a day and took the train into Liverpool and out again, under the Mersey to Hamilton Square station […]

GLOSSOP. Coffee in Derbyshire.

Okay so run with me on this one. As anybody who’s read any of my ramblings on this blog will know I am more than fond of of coffee, cake and rail travel and few weeks ago I managed to combine all three one Saturday afternoon. Where I live I’m lucky enough to have access to a selection of travel tickets. One of which, the Wayfarer covers a large area […]
