Ha, yeah it's definitely somewhat off the beaten track, and not normally a magnet for visitors. We used to cross it north-south and east-west quite a bit, and not really pay it much notice.

So I was surprised when I moved to the area just how nice scenery parts of Beds/Herts/Bucks has. Fens still freak me out a bit with their flatness, mind. Oh yes, I bet Grimsby's been pretty bracing!

Thanks John. I see from your profile that you live in Bedfordshire, one of [to me, in earlier times at least] one of England's drive-through counties.

Our son went to University in Sheffield, as you may have read and now lives in Manchester. Pre-plague, I would devise various routes to cycle up for a visit to either of those cities. Consequently, I have become more familiar with the less touristy parts of the country. Grimsby's not so nice this time of year.

Funny to see more photos of Potton appearing on CycleBlaze! The place hasn't changed much since 2008, though that cafe is now a hairdresser (closed at the moment of course).

This is great, thanks Michael, I don't think I saw this the first time round.
