Towers and toffee.
40 miles of trail for me (50 miles for Amy) taking in several follies. A delightful phenomenon round here is a plethora of hilltop turrets, mostly built by slightly bonkers industrialists of the past. Today we took in Rivington Pike, Peel Tower, Turton Tower and as featured in todays photo the itty-bitty tower in the grounds of Turton Gardens. We also managed a pub stop for yummy sandwich. 40 miles is my longest ever off road ride and the last bit was somewhat hard going, I've had double portions of sticky toffee pudding for dinner to apologise to my abused body.
