Yesterdays Run 8 miles 10 locks

ImageStarted with a walk/run into Adderley, a little village with a hall but no shop or any real centre we could find. Mary asked the only foreigner in town who only had a tiny amount of English.

Lynn had a bruising encounter with the first few locks and but really began to get the hang of it. We'll have another go at driving tomorrow. The locks were moderately busy with a few boats coming up, enough to make it a pretty quick transit.

We stopped in Audlem for water and some supplies at the very nice village store. Another chap from Napton Narrowboats arrived to have a go at the reluctant bog and had another go, Lynn reports no success.


Image Charlotte an I were keen to take Lynn to the Secret Nuclear Bunker and arrived in time for a short visit, It remains impressive but not enough for the remainder of the crew to come for a second visit. Lynn was certainly impressed by the scale of communications equipment, which is of course all they would have had to do.

Moored at the visitor moorings at Nantwich as the canal bank elsewhere is concrete and too shallow to get the boat to the side. despite this it was very quite  apart from all the runners coming thtough our barbecue on the tow path.

The girls played a very noisy version of 500 until late while I took myself to bed for an early night.
