Brrrr It was Cold.

9 Locks, 12 Miles. Now moored near Bridge 160 Sandbach.

Early morning on the Trent & Mersey Canal.

When we set off at 8am the weather wasn’t too bad. The sun was making an effort to appear but as the day wore on the storm bearing down from the North caught up with us. The cold wind was the worst of it because we only had 1 rain shower at Kings lock. At least we were not the only silly beggars on the move as we passed quite a few others doing the same.

Very tidy canal side garden on the Trent & Mersey Canal.

As we have travelled this route before there was nothing new or spectacular except to say that some redevelopment at the site of the Lion Salt works is taking place although we are unsure if it has anything to do with the museum.

Lock 72 Middlewich and there is a cold wind blowing.

By 2pm we were all moored up and in by the heater with a hot cup of soup and toast to try and thaw out our chilled bodies.

1974 locks, 3860 miles, 75 tunnels, 129 swing bridges and 54 lift bridges since Nov 2006
