We left Market Drayton this morning at 10.00am. The weather was overcast and cool.
After about a mile we came to the Tyrley Locks. A flight of 5. As we approached there were 2 boats waiting to ascend. As we helped them through, another 4 boats converged. The going was slow.
We have pictures but the internet connection here is so slow, we will post them tomorrow.
We continued for a further 5 miles, and then it started to rain. Not heavy but persistant.
The scenery, despite the rain, has been a total contrast to what we have seen in the last few months. Long sweeping valleys, deep embankements and shaded areas where trees intermingled across the canal.
We have arrived at Norbury Junction.
Tomorrow we are having a rest day
