    Night 2&3, Marcoing

    A site close to Canal de St Quentin with a village just a short walk away. Lovely quite spot with free camping facilities.

    We came across a farm shop that had a vending machine instead of a counter. They only sold 5 different things but it was fun to use.

    A tandem ride along the canal took us past a couple of locks and barges- they are a bit bigger than we are used to in the Black Country!

    About 3km South West was an industrial town with strong and not very pleasant smells 😕 but a lovely 'Boucherie' whose staff were very patient with our limited French and cut us some lamb chops for tea.

    Lost and found.

    This week we are in Northern France. I have three great uncles buried here from WW1. One I can't find. The other two were brothers (my dad's uncles Albert and Edgar Galloway). There's also the deep connection for Canterbury Baptist Church with this area as eight of it's young men were killed here. Time to dwell on what's happened here, and humanity's reason for being.
    A unique day; until tomorrow (Fromelles).

    We stopped in campsites here - the first night in Albert, and the second night further north just east of Arras.
