Middlewich

We landed in Middlewich around lunchtime after a fairly trouble free run through 14 locks over around 8 miles, starting at around 7.30am. The trip was made easier as many of the first locks encountered from Hassall Green are paired, and with two boat crews, can be handled very efficiently. Now I am aware that many of the images are of the boat, as will be the one later here of our Middlewich mooring for the night, opposite the famous fish and chip shop, which we have tried and loved in the recent past, and intend to do the same tonight. But first are what I think are great images, as far as an iPhone photo goes anyway, of last night's sunset and this morning's sunrise.



If you have ever travelled south on the M6 motorway through Cheshire and noticed canal locks on the left hand side, here is the same location viewed from the canal.


The M6 passes right over the canal here.

Finally, as promised, the picture of the boat on our Middlewich mooring.


It is easily possible to complete the trip to our home mooring from here in the day, but, as usual, we intend to take it easy and do it over two, and we are sorry to say, that will be where we say Bon voyage to Tom, Jan and Waiouru, whose company we have so enjoyed over the last couple of weeks or thereabouts, as they carry on their canal adventure, and we return to reality.
