By the start of April we were well & truly ready for a few days break, so we went up to the Wirral to be with family to help celebrate my Dads 79th birthday with a lovely meal & a walk around Chester's Roman walls. Then last Sunday was our wedding anniversary so we had a stroll around Leek's excellent farmers market, followed by a steam train ride on the Churnet Valley Railway including up the Cauldon Lowe line to Ipstones, which was very interesting. We finished the day off with Dinner at the Black Lion at Consall Forge. This pub has a magical location beside the river Churnet, the Caldon Canal & the Churnet Valley Railway. With a good choice of local real ales & good value home cooked food it's well worth a visit if your boating on the Caldon.
