We are just outside Middlewich at moorings near the Stanthorne Lock, we met someone along the way that advised against mooring in Middlewich, don’t know how true this is but we will go through tomorrow and have a look. The town itself is not supposed to be much to go on.
The promised rain came down this afternoon after we had stopped for lunch so we only managed to travel a further mile before decided to moor up, if we were not to moor in Middlewich it would have taken another two and half hours and 6 Locks to get through and back out into the countryside.
You can see from the map (from Jim Sheads web site) how much of the system we have done, coloured in black. So you can see that there remains a fair amount still to be done, we may need to speed our progress up a tad.
The Mon and Brec in Wales was done on a hire boat just before we bought Lazydays, so maybe should not be on here but everything else has been done since we set out almost two years ago.
Today we did 5.86 Miles and 2 Locks
Statistics so far:-
1337.72 Miles, 846 Locks, 74 Swing Bridges, 65 Lift Bridges, 14 Tunnels
