And so here we are back at pretty much the same overnight mooring as we took when we came onto the Llangollen Canal three weeks ago. It is a fairly quiet mooring although you can just about hear the traffic on the main Wrexham to Nantwich road about a quarter of a mile away. First thing tomorrow will be Hurleston Locks which I hope will be easier going down than they were coming up, and then onto Nantwich, hopefully there for about lunchtime. I think I might take advantage of the pool in Nantwich to go for a swim, although the brine pool will probably be out of commission by now as it is an outdoor pool.
We have a couple of things we need to get done in Nantwich, crew needs to pick up her new glasses and get a new watch and we also need to refuel since we are probably down to about our last 25 litres. Need to see if we can find somewhere selling ‘Stoveglow’ coal to get stocked up for the start of winter. Once all of this has been done we will then start making our way towards Chester.
