Barnton

This morning we took a stroll up to the Trent & Mersey Canal between Barnton and Saltersford tunnels. The pool between the 2 tunnels.

We then walked up into the outskirts of Barnton, towards Barnton Tunnel. This is an air shaft of Barnton tunnel.

We spotted Roy and Thomas off of Gerald No.13 walking towards the locks so we walked there to see them. These boats were arriving at the locks, presumably out from Acton Bridge Cruising Club for the weekend.

We walked back to the boat with Roy and Thomas, where we said our farewells to them as they carried back to Gerald No.13.
