With Joe and Graham off on a trip to Stoke-on-Trent, myself and Jill took ourselves and the four dogs off to Barlaston Downs, owned and managed by the National Trust. We were out walking for four hours! We met the two youngsters below, Winston a four month old dog and Molly a six month old bitch had a wonderful time socialising with my Labs and Jill's Tibetan Terriers.
Only a twenty minute walk from the canal and here we are ready to start our walk on the downs.
The downs are grazed by young 'bully-beefs' who surprisingly completely ignored both dogs and us humans as we walked by.
This is the route off of the Downs along clear tracks alongside the ripening wheat.
We will mark this as a grand place to visit again when we pass this way in the future.
