We travelled from Northwich to Middlewich today. The canal was very scenic, but lots of reeds causing the canal to be a single lane in places.
The (wich) in these places ie Northwich, Middlewich) means salt. They are salt producing towns. This has caused a lot of subsidence within the area.
Middlewich is a lovely little town.Today they had a market, selling good quality products. We bought 5 cheeses from the Cheshire Cheese Co, which are great tasting cheeses.
Despite the weather forecast, it has been lovely and sunny here.
Today has been an easy day. Tomorrow we join the Shropshire Union Canal then the Llangollen, and locks which we have not encoutered for about 40 miles.
