Bosley Locks to Adlington.

Adlington Basin

8:00am start up the Bosley locks, and only the first lock was with us. Despite this we did the flight in 2 hours.

You get a great view of Bosley Cloud, from the locks in the flight, this was from lock 9.

And this was from lock 6.

By the time we got to lock 3 low cloud had settled on the top of Bosley Cloud.

At Oakgrove we came across working narrow boat Alton, and we pulled alongside for a quick chat with Ann-Marie. Brian is in Ireland at the moment, but returning home later today. We will catch up with them during our return journey.

The beauty of the Macclesfield canal is the hills of the Peak District and Pennines which surround it.

I think every boater has a photo of the Clarence Mill, Bollington, I am no exception.

These lambs have probably been gambling around all morning, and are now too pooped!

We have managed to get as far as Adlington, we could have tried to go further, but didn’t want to risk there being no moorings available at Poynton and Marple, as we know that there is nowhere after Marple until Whaley Bridge. We are now within a days run of our destination for this trip.

Jo didn’t fancy cooking, so we went to the Miners Arms for dinner and very nice it was too. We had their miners combo starter, and Jo had fish and chips whilst I had the gammon. We also had a pint each of the special ale only served in the pub, and very nice it was too.
