We left Nantwich yesterday, and the weather was overcast.

We had 6 miles and 4 locks to complete.

Shortly after setting off, it started raining, not heavy but light showers. But we continued.

We arrived at Audlem around 1.00pm, and set off exploring the village
Audlem is a very picturesque village. Above is the Church.

We had a meal in The Bridge, which was excellent. After that we visited the Shropshire Fly, for some live entetainment. The Shropshire Fly is an unusual pub which has a bar shaped like the front and side of a narrowboat. The entertainment was not to our liking, so we departed after 3 songs, and retired to the boat.

This morning we woke up to early morning mist

At 9.05am we set off. It was cool but the sun had burnt off the mist.

We completed 18 locks and 6 miles, to reach Market Drayton in Shropshire.

After mooring up we walking the 1/2 mile into the town. To be honest we were really disapointed. The place is really run down, with a lot of shops empty and to let signs were everywhere. The only booming trade we could see was Keebab shops of which we counted 5.

However, it has been a real nice day with sunshine all the way.

Tomorrow we hope to make it to Norbury Junction. A favourite place of ours.
