Here I am Rune
Distance 10.7 miles
Total 2958 Locks  152 Tunnels
Running total mileage 4303.9 miles

We had a change of plan today and, instead of going through the 6 tunnels, we only got through 4 of them and have moored for the night at the Dutton Bank, at the location of the canal breach in 2012. It leaves us about an hour and forty minutes away from Anderton for tomorrows trip and then to head back to Middlewich on Friday. The reason for mooring is is because it has quite a spectacular view across the River Weaver.

By strange coincidence, the only boats that we came across today who were on the move were both in Preston Brook Tunnel. One followed us through as we went to Midland Chandlers and another followed us back through the tunnel on our return, otherwise there has been nothing else on the move today. It was a pity since, despite a less than ideal weather forecast, it was actually OK.
