After arriving Blackburn at 08.50 on the 07.50 152 hotline bus from Burnley.I then walked the Leeds & Liverpool canal from Paradise Bridge to Side Beets Bridge.I then made my way up through Whitebirk Industrial Estate on to Whalley Old Road/Blackburn Old Road for a revisit.On down to Rishton next for the 12.05 152 bus back to Burnley,then the 13.05 M1 Barnaldswick bus home.A grey & gloomy day but enjoyed the walk & all for the cost of a £6.50 Lancashire Day ticket,purchased on the 06.45 M1 from Earby another bargain day out.
