More fun with the hire boaters. Not sure what happened here on the lock approach. He was tied on to the mooring bollard but I guess he just used the end of the centre line. The fisherman set up where he was didn’t help matters.
Now on the Trent and Mersey and with over 30 locks in front of us Carolyn is taking them in her stride. Here we have passed under the M6 Motorway and continue our journey towards the Macclesfield canal.
As soon as we got on to the Maccelsfield canal Carolyn spotted this little lot. Its wild Raspberries and I had to reverse Inca back in to the off side bank so we could fill a bowl with the little beauties.
There are 12 locks on the Bosley flight and it must be the most enjoyable and picturesque flights we have done so far. The temperature was in the mid twenties when we went up the flight . What's unusual about these locks is that all the gates are mitered gates. So there are 2 gates on each end of a lock.
Nearly at the top and what a view. After 5 hours of cruising and locking we picked up a good mooring at the top of the flight . We had rain on Sunday so decided to sit still and do some much needed maintenance and tidying up on Inca. We will then be heading up to the end of the Macclesfield canal and then on to the Peak Forest canal.
