A dull but dry start as we set off from Harecastle tunnel.  Boats were already queuing up for the tunnel as we left.

We pulled into the services at Etruria Industrial Museum for water, whilst here we briefly chatted to Andrew who was getting Lindsay ready to take to Westport lake for a children’s event happening there today.

This footbridge over the railway at Cockshutts lock clearly shows how it was raised to clear the overhead electric cables.

Stoke bottom lock, we had a lot of boats coming up through the locks, which made life much easier for Jo.

We briefly stopped at Hemheath bridge No.106 at Trentham, so Jo could buy a new hat from J&P Hats at Trentham Gardens.

We then carried on to the Wedgwood factory at Barlaston, and for once were able to moor opposite the factory.
