Return Trip from Consall Forge

We planned our holiday so we could have time to relax for a few days at Consall Forge. It is one of our favourite places on the system, completely isolated with no phone or internet signals. On this occasion we did not take our boat to Froghall, but we did had a very enjoyable walk, rewarded by a nice cold pint at the Black Lion on our return. As we were there over the weekend, the steam train was running as well.
