Yeterday we left the Trent and Mersey and joined the Shropshire Union (Middlewich Branch)

The weather was very pleasant, if fact we wore shorts.

As you can imagine on a Bank Holiday weekend it is very busy.

We did 10.81 miles including 7 locks before we reached Barbridge Junction. This is where we join the main line of the Shropshire Union Canal (Shroppie).

We moored up for the evening and visited Ye Olde Barbridge Inn. Very busy but able to sit outside until around 8.00pm.

We had heard that a festival was on at the Jolly Tar pub. But on approaching we could hear loud heavy metal music, which is not our taste.

Today we set off and after a mile on the Shroppie we joined the Llangollen Canal at Hurleston Junction.
After 4 locks and filling up the water tank, we have set off for Wrenbury. However heavy rain has halted our progress, but we hope to continue later.
As we are now in more countryside, we sometimes find it difficult to obtain a signal on our mi-fi unit, as it works on the same principle as a mobile phone. So please  bear with us.
