After a very peaceful night on the moorings just past Aqueduct marina we pulled pins at 07.40 in beautiful Sunshine and headed off along the Middlewich Branch and soon passing this fine looking House at Church Minshull Wharf.
After a quick stop in Middlewich to replenish the cupboards we carried on Northwards on The T&M . We soon passed this boat and was amazed by the amount of stick on solar panels on it’s port side. The strange thing is that there were none on the roof and I couldn’t see any cables coming from them to link up with the boat’s battery bank. How bizarre !
A couple of miles before Broken cross and we picked up this mooring, one which we have used a couple of times before. It’s very similar to Tixall Wide where the canal opens up and it almost feels like you are on a lake. We will now have a night here and then cruise on for a couple of hours in the morning and then hopefully get passage down the Anderton boat lift and on to The River Weaver.
