We finally get onto the Middlewich branch after leaving the Llangollen and spending a night at Barbridge . We haven't bought any diesel for nearly 7 weeks and we wouldn’t pay the sky high prices on the Llangollen so we needed to fill up. We filled up at Venetian marina where the price was 89p a litre, unfortunately it had just gone up by 2p the day before. We also needed a gas cylinder which was £27.50. So with 214 litres of diesel and a gas cylinder (Ouch that hurt the wallet) we should be ok for a month or two.
After turning left at the end of the middlewich branch we did a Tesco shop in the town then headed off out into the country.We picked up this mooring in a wide section of canal and with the temperature in the twenties, as usual we just chilled out and watched the world go by. We are heading towards The Anderton boat lift, I have always wanted to go on the lift although Carolyn is not that happy about going down onto the river Weaver. I am sure I can convince her it will be ok….fingers crossed.
