northernvicarwalks – August 2021

I should entitle these monthly summaries “northernvicardoesn’twalk” or “northernvicarridestherails”. I only walked 20 miles this month. I rode lots of trains. The Wrexham Bidston line, Sheffield trams (though I had to walk the final mile when they took my tram out of service!), the Apedale Railway, two days in Bristol (including a ride through St Philip’s Marsh Depot), Edinburgh and the tram, Birmingham (with two freight lines), and Bedford/Leighton Buzzard. I can feel your excitement!

There was a lot of work done – an email from On High “hoping I was having a quiet summer” got a resounding raspberry. There have been a lot of baptisms and weddings – all good fun.

Two National Trust properties this month. Beningborough Hall was rather lovely – a good place to meet Harry and Sarah (we are a long way from them).

Julie herded sheep at Kedleston.

I continued to ramble on facebook.
