23 February 16        Along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal from Ashton-under-Lyne to Uppermill, then caught
the train back to Ashton but stopped off at Stalybridge to sample the delights of the famous Victorian buffet bar -
there's an hour between trains so time enough for a leisurely couple of pints.  Sunny.
