JayCeeDee, if you used the Trent and Mersey, you will have come past the house I was born in. Barlaston, N.Staffs. I was always playing by “The Cut” as a kid

Les, considering your timescale and the fact that this would have been around 1976, we probably did pass by you. If it was late in the afternoon, we would have been terrorising the innocent grazing sheep, by shouting “Mint Sauce” as we passed them by heading for the next pub!!!

One thing that I do remember from that trip was that the whole countryside around that area – except where the canals passed through some of the more industrialised towns – was beautiful, peaceful, ( once we had left, )  and England at it’s very best.
