Coole Pilate to Winsford Top Flash.

So much for our 6:00am starts, it was 5:55am this morning! That is a couple of times we have set off before 6:00am. A coldish start, more akin to an autumnal morning, with a heavy mist laying over the canal as we set off.

The mist disappeared once the sun rose above the horizon.

Once again all the locks, the 2 at Hack Green, and the first 2 on the Middlewich branch, were in our favour again. By the time we arrived at Barbridge junction, the sun had started to warm things up, and my donkey jacket came off. At least the only boats queuing at locks were going the opposite direction. With only one boat moored at the moorings above Winsford Top Flash, which moved off after we tied up, we had the choice of moorings, with an excellent view across the Weaver valley from here.
