Vale Royal  moorings

Having had a great festival at Northwich, and watched the boats leaving the site yesterday, we set off this morning ourselves. First port of call was to return down river to the sanitary station to empty out, then we headed upriver towards Winsford. Leaving the sanitary station to return back under Town swing bridge, and past the festival site.
