The landscape has started changing now and we were treated to a glimpse of what we have got to come, but then we hit Blackburn. It wasn’t quite as bad as we thought it would be, passing the old mills, some of which have now been demolished making way for new housing and retail. The flight of Blackburn locks were very urban, as we climbed up, now overlooking the cathedral and Thwaite’s brewery. A short section after the locks, we were having to dodge the shopping trolley’s, due to three nearby supermarkets, but we came out unscathed. We are now back in countryside, enjoying the views.
