DAY 36: Chester to Ellesmere Port (9.28m)

A short walk today - a hop, skip and a jump along the canal.

 Not so idle! 

Not so idle! 

I'm walking two days before the general election, through the City of Chester constituency which at the time is the most marginal in the country with a Labour majority of just 93 votes. It's looking good and the canalside properties have come out strongly for Labour (Labour went on to increase their majority to 9,176!).

It's a really blustery day on the Shropshire Union Canal.

I leave the canal and cut across the M56 to take me into Ellesmere Port. I'm staying with the our family friends the Gladwins - I love the message waiting for me at the house!
