Astley Green to Wigan

A cool day weather-wise. We got to Wigan and moored between the 2 locks 86 & 87, and had some lunch.

We then set off to book our passage into Liverpool and to do a food shop at Asda. We met Vicky at the CRT office who booked our passage for this coming Friday and our return a week later. We are now both looking forward very much to the journey, knowing we can actually get through. We returned from Asda’s with 2 rather full rucksacks of food to find Hadar was listing at a jaunty angle, the water level of pound between the 2 locks had gone down and she was sitting on the bottom, so we decided to move below Bottom lock, to Wigan Pier.

This is Wigan Pier, not the original, but a replacement as the original had been sold for scrap!

Not much to look at but what do you expect?
