Cheddleton Station to Consall Forge

Another short run this morning to Consall Forge, we initially moored near the water point, but as the mooring in front of the Black Lion, we moved onto it for the classic photo at Consall Forge.

The Black Lion, there is no road access to this pub for deliveries! We had a pint each before lunch.

After lunch we walked up “Devil’s Staircase” behind the Black Lion, these are just a few of the 198 steps!

Big day tomorrow, we will attempt to get through the very low Froghall tunnel. Keith.
