Review of 2017 : September

September was another busy month, well they are all busy months now. It started with a return to the Peak Rail up in Rowsley South to attend the Heritage Shunter Trust's gala. Later in the month came trips to Bermuda Park near Nuneaton (including a canal walk) and Smethwick Rolfe Street for part of the Heritage Open Weekend.

Mid-month i went to Stone to walk the Trent & Mersey Canal. Later in the month came my second Hidden London tour of the year, this time to the now-disused Jubilee Line platforms at Charing Cross (and some other London rail adventures too). Finally at the end of the month was a return to the Cromford Canal to walk the remaining bits between Whatstandwell and Ambergate i had yet to do. That meant i had walked all of the extant Cromford except for the little stub at Langley Mill (see next month).

Song of the month was "lofticries" by Purity Ring.
