I’ve been staying in Naas this week running a course on the assessment and control of noise. Thursday was the final teaching day with the exam on Friday. At 5 o’clock, after I’d packed up it was still light and fine outside so I decided to go for a walk. It was cold, but I wrapped up well and set out from my hotel.
I headed to the south of the town centre around where there are some small artificial lakes created to minimise flooding in the town centre.
After circumnavigating the lakes, I doubled back through the town centre, turning down Moat street and walking past the North Moat earthwork
and the old cemetery
down to the canal.
I walked up the road running along the east bank as far as the bridge at Mill Lane.
It was quite a pleasant walk, 3 or 4 miles in total, but relatively flat and I felt it had done me some good, clearing out the cobwebs, by the time I got back to my hotel.
