Day 45: Audlem and Nantwich

August 12th, 2010

Today i’ve done lots of locks – 17 in total – and started in the pouring rain. Fortunately, by lock 3 of the Audlem flight the sun came out and I took my waterproofs off. I stopped briefly at Audlem Mill, after thirteen locks, and bought an ice-cream. After that I found myself in a queue to do the last two locks in the flight, and the queue reappeared at the two locks at Hack Green, next to the Secret Nuclear Bunker…

I’ve finally moored on the edge of Nantwich and treated myself to fish and chips.

Day 45: 8 miles and 17 locks. Total so far 460 miles and 347 locks.

    I am at my parents local news has apparently been reporting that canals are closed over the penines due to lack of water,

    Hi Andrew: the Leeds & Liverpool is closed due to a water shortage, though that’s partly because it leaks like a sieve. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal (which I’ll be using) is still open, and I’m booked through Standedge Tunnel on Monday week.
