Congleton to Bottom of Bosley Locks

Below Bosley Locks

A late start this morning, as we were only travelling 4 miles today to the bottom of Bosley locks. Having got here there is no sign of the lock stoppage which was due to finish tomorrow, whether they finished early or it never happened, we will never know. We decided to stop anyway as we had some important jobs to do after lunch.

First we had to empty out the bilges under the boatmans cabin, which we shared, and whilst down there I topped the gearbox oil, checked the pipe connections to the gearbox, and greased the propshaft bearing. Jo put some disposable nappies down to soak up the last remnants over the next few days.

Keith.
