I thought I would share the photos I took when walking through the woodland mentioned in my last post.
Friday was dry, but not as warm as predicted. We decided to move along. The two moorings I chose (quiet and rural) were turned down by Charlie. Because the Middlewich branch is only 8 miles long, we soon found ourselves at Barbridge junction, and we needed to turn right here for Chester. It was busy. A boat got caught by the wind and couldn’t make the turn in, we stopped to investigate, meanwhile another boat behind us carried on despite us telling them the scenario! Anyway we got through safely and moored a little way before Bunbury staircase locks on the Shropshire Union Canal. Weather has changed somewhat and although bright is cooler. No time restriction where we are so we may stay a couple of nights and do some chores (and no doubt more fishing….yawn!!!). Nearby is Bunbury water mill and Beeston castle. We may investigate these at some point. Either soon or on the way back.
