Phil Godfrey is planning to walk from the Scillies Isles right on to Shetland. This is in memory of his wife Christine who was diagnosed with APS in 2005 and who passed away in January 2015. Due to injuries sustained early on he is doing this in stages.
Travelled to Liverpool 07.01 train on time. Met Brian easily on station, and walked through the City Centre and Pierhead to Stanley dock where we joined Leeds / Liverpool Canal. Good walk to Crosby, although had very severe rain showers on occasions.At Crosby, weather was a very strong NW gale force wind. Route from Crosby to Formby was as sheltered as possible due to severe gale.Stayed with Brian & Penny, and had lovely meal at the Railway pub
