I should say how wonderful the food was at the other checkpoints too - porridge and toast at no1 and the most superb humous and cucumber sandwiches at no 2. Just fantastic! I am also still amazed at the canals, especially the very narrow ones with lots of locks just after Brindley Place (Farmer's Flight?) and buildings with canal in their basement. I wouldn't want to do this route every week, but once a year is just fab!

Plum flapjacks get my vote - scrummy! Lemon cake was good too - sorry didn't try any others.

The Ponton Plod.
Thanks to everyone who took part in The Ponton Plod yesterday. To the relief of all the forecast heavy rain in the afternoon never arrived, just a couple of showers.
Hope to see you all again for next years event on September 14th.

Hi Mui yes the grid reference is wrong it should be SP 096 847 That will put you right at the entrance to the Ackers site on Golden Hillock Road
(its about 250 acres) we will then have parking marshals to guide you. Just a quick note to anyone without plans for the 21st we still have about 25 spaces left and online bookings (sportident) are open until Wednesday

I just noticed that the Grid reference for the BCC start location does not correspond to the postcode. Could you please correct the grid reference.
