Heading North to Manchester Area, heading for Scotland

Ian had booked a car to take us to Heathrow to collect the car. We had a terrific run as I was expecting loads of traffic being Good Friday.

Collection of the rental car was easy and we were in the road within about 30 mins of arriving at the avis desk, this included a 15 min ride on the avis bus to their car depot.

We set of with the trusty GPS and without any trouble we were soon motoring north.

At 11.30 we arrived in Oxford, found a park and a coffee. The wind was howling but we still had a wander around they had a street closed off due to Good Friday and there were street shows and a people everywhere.


Back on the road at 1.30pm we struck a bit of traffic on the M6 around Birmingham otherwise the drive was okay.

We struck more traffic at Stoke on Trent and as it was almost 4pm we decided to find a hotel. No trouble with the GPS straight to a Holiday Inn. Dinner and Breakfast included so a good deal.

Dinner very nice and we had all turned in by 8pm.
