What a day yesterday. I knew I was cutting it a bit fine to finish at ten to 6 at a Lancaster Chamber event at the Longlands, just north of Carnforth (gateway to the Lakes), and make it to Ewood Park for our Lancashire Dealmakers Awards for 7.30. Suffice to say I didn't. The traffic chaos in Preston, caused by a nitric acid spill (read about it here) meant I diverted up the Lune Valley, Wray, Long Preston, Skipton, Guisburn, Nelson, M65 - Then to Roverrrrrs for ten to 8.
Put it this way, it's probably a very nice drive during the day.
