Goldstone to Market Drayton

Map picture

 

A cool and windless start this morning, and despite all 5 Tyrley locks being against us, we were through the bottom lock by 7:30am, a bit too early to expect boats to be moving out of Market Drayton and vacating the moorings, so we moored up below the bottom lock and had a coffee. As we waited a boat came towards us from Market Drayton so we enquired about moorings at Drayton, and they assured us that there was plenty of room before Bridge 62, so we set off, and low and behold there was plenty of room on the ringed moorings, which was ideal. Moored up we set off with our rucksacks for the town, and discovered a new small Asda, so in we popped and did our shopping. Upon returning to Hadar I got chatting to Colin & Carole on “The Wool Boat”. They are based at Burscough on the Leeds & Liverpool, and this is the first time we have met them.

Market Drayton

The wind has returned, but plenty of time this afternoon to explore Market Drayton.
