Review of 2017 : October

Compared to the Summer months October was maybe a little bit quieter, but not by much. It started with a trip to Hemel Hempstead to explore more of the Grand Union Canal. There was also a return to Duffield, this time exploring the village itself (instead of just taking a train elsewhere) and the castle.

Later in the month i returned to London for my third and final Hidden London tour, this time of the TFL headquarters 55 Broadway - a stunning building. There was also time for some rail adventures in London of course. Finally at the end of the month i went up to Langley Mill to do some canal walking including the final stub of the Cromford Canal which eluded me. I've now walked all of that canal which is still extant and publicly accessible.

Song of the month was "nowhere" by Wallflower.
