We’re On The Road To Somewhere (day1)

I suppose that it’s only fitting that after starting Joe Moran’s “Roads” I should spend almost all day on a variety of England’s traversible routes including a fleeting glimpse of the lowest of the low – the A1101 just outside xyz  and it seems officially the lowest road in xyz and several hours later the highest motorway point in Britain on the xyz moors via the M62.
All this driving was in order to achieve arrival at our initial destination, on our journey to Oban, namely Carlisle. Unfortunately we arrived after the city (?) had closed for the day (due to a self imposed and wildly meandering diversion through the lakes on the way up) so had a cursory wander round the centre which seems pleasant, enough although largely unassuming, before getting something to eat and retiring to our cavernous, souless (but ultimately cheap) Travelodge room.
