Our dog has never really liked the car. As a puppy he was sick on one of our first trips out (only as far a Chorley). Perhaps that memory has something to do with it, as we only go to places which he appears to love once we get there. Sometimes though he makes it abundantly clear that the car is off limits for the day in which case I often set off to walk to a particular point of interest (sometimes for me) rather than a walk to the park.
It must have been spring when we walked up through Lostock hall and Farrington to the Centurian Tank at Flensburg Way. It's an impressive landmark, passed by thousands each day. A small plaque tells a bit of Leyland's tank building history which took place not too far away.
Having taken a few photos we wandered across the footpaths over the moss to Whitestake and back past Newgate Nurseries to the end of Bee Lane.
Not a spectacular walk, but not bad if you fancy leaving the car at home.
