I had a little time today to look at the route up to Coalport of Friday. Depending on the weather I have a couple of routes. One is mostly motorway M20/M25/M1/M6/M54. The other runs a little further south that takes the motorways as far as Oxford and then the A44 to Evesham and Worcester before turning north to Coalport.
If the weather is not very good as they are predicting then I'll stick with plan A. If not, then Plan B and maybe a chance to maybe take some pix on the way.
