|Troy 29.5 miles from Liverpool|
The towpath was quite busy with walkers, dogs and cyclists but hardly crowded. It was nice to be somewhere so quiet, no traffic and no seagulls. The only interruption to the quiet was the occasional passing train. The two shallow locks at Appley Locks are looking worse every time I see them, which is a shame.

|WW2 HomeGuard Roadblock Post Hole|
|Pill Box by the Canal|
There were some blue damsel flies and a large dragonfly flying about the water. A mystery animal jumped into the canal as we passed it.
At the 25 miles milepost we overtook a scouser trying to buy drugs from his friend on the phone.
In Burscough there was a strange floating shed/piano/cupboard. Not something I have ever seen before.
