March 19th – It’s not just public transport that was deserted, either: The roads and towns are too.
Like something in an apocalyptic 1970s drama, all of a sudden people are draining out of view in this country. It’s most odd.
At this time on a weekday on the canal at Catshill Junction I’d normally see a dog walker or two, usually some runners.
But not today. Even in these final days of winter time, before the clocks change and light floods back to the evenings.
