    Another day and another circuit.
    Traffic issues at Shrewsbury nearly scuppered the day before it began and the gale was incessant and the sunny intervals fleeting.
    Despite that I managed to get to Rednal, Oakengates(again) - note the change of centre bracket adornment and finally Penkridge,.
