Log No 364. Thu 3rd Jul 2014 - Humberston to Immingham, 14 miles (5560 miles walked)
Karen dropped Mick & I off back in Humberston at 08.40 and was going to pick us up again by Immingham Docks at 14.30.
Mick in Cleethorpes
There was a bit of sunshine as we walked into Cleethorpes but it was mainly cloudy.
We continued walking along the seafront towards Grimsby until we found the way barricaded before we got to the Fish Docks.
Dave looking to Grimsby
Luckily we had just passed a footbridge over the railway line so we didn't have to go right back into Cleethorpes.
We followed the road next to the railway line going past the houses to the Fish Dock area. We may not have been seeing the sights of Grimsby but we certainly had the smells with the fish factories and shops.
Once we had passed the docks we were able to get onto the path/cycleway on the defensive sea wall along the bank of the Humber.
Looking back to Grimsby
We had 3 miles along this wall going past four industrial complexes and we only met two guys fishing from the back of a van and three cyclists.
Dave along the sea wall to Immingham
As we got close to Immingham Docks we took a footpath to get onto the main road round the outside of the docks.
Looking to Immingham Docks
We had realised that we were likely to finish an hour earlier than planned evrn though we had been trying to walk slower than normal.
We hadn't expected to find a cafe but we came across one near the docks and managed to make two mugs of tea last nearly an hour and we ended up getting to the rendezvous point a couple of minutes after Karen & Sandra.
It had been an easy 14 miles.
