Not traveled far today...
...just a few miles further along the Middlewich Branch. I serviced the engine after I let it cool down for an hour, changed the oil and filter, I didn't want the engine to have old oil with harmful combustion products sat in the engine during Winter Mainte...

A stroll along the canal and some fish & chips.
We took a walk back to the junction with the Trent and Mersey Canal and turned left to see the Middlewich Boats site now abandoned. Further up is the Big Lock pub and last time we were here there was a block of flats newly built next door. Now they extend f...

Middlewich 180
It was a surprisingly long way to Middlewich, but as we approached bridge 26 we realised Stanthorn Lock was just around the corner and then the former breach site. This was a major operation and the photographs shown here and other publications don't do it ...

Middlewich Branch
Wended our way from Bunbury to Calveley and stopped to fill the tank with water, and stopped again a couple of hundred yards along to visit the cheese shop. Note to self, worth a visit. We cruised past our base, which seemed a bit strange, and headed toward...

After yesterday's weather, back to normal.
That was weird, one day of strong winds and back to calm and dull, which is ok for us. We had a long way to go today, what we did in two days will be done in one today, so an earlier start was required. Cheers Cheshire Cat, see you another time. The start o...

And the wind blew...
Didn't it just, especially along the three mile long stretch of moored boats, it was whipping up into breaking waves on the water. The farmer who owns that length of land alongside the cut must be rolling in it, hundreds upon hundreds of moored boats. We ma...

The plan was...
...Lunch at the Shady Oak. No such luck as it's closed, and has been for a while by the look of it. Oh well, nothing else for it so moor up, and lunch on TQ. Linda's finest Turkey and Noodle soup followed by a slice of Christmas cake dawbed with brandy crea...

I struggled to pass the Olde Barbridge Inn.
We slipped our moorings late again, we must be getting old. Stopped in Nantwich for some provisions and a pasty and stopped again at the water point to refill. We caught up with a boat that passed us while we were refilling. It turned up the Hurleston fligh...

Another lazy Boxing Day...
Had a late start, E 4 B, emptied the ash pan, brought in some wood and coal, disposed of all the rubbish and had a tidy up. Makes ya feel better for the rest of the day. Slipped the moorings at 12:20, exceptionally late for us, and we didn't go far, only ju...

So this is Christmas.
Had a lazy morning, opened a couple of prezzies... Less of the "Old" please. Chugged on down to the winding 'ole at the bottom of the Audlem Flight, did a 180 and came back to where we started. The turkey was almost ready by then. After a lovely lunch we wa...
