I am having to place a watermark on the blog content as someone on Facebook is stealing photos and claiming them as their own. I wouldn't mind if they asked first and attributed it to my blog. If it continues I will name and shame them. I hope it doesn't spoil your enjoyment.

Warm welcome at the Crown Hotel Nantwich
It was a very wet and windy night again, but a sunny morning. Very quiet at Barbridge and still very cold. We had a lazy morning and set off at 1050 for Nantwich. No problems and the temperature actually went up a bit, so the trip was quite pleasant. We were very well wrapped up of course! Not too busy at the Nantwich moorings so after checking out spaces, we went along to the winding hole and came back to moor quite near the aqueduct at 1230. After lunch on board we walked down to the town, enjoying the sight of all the lovely old buildings on the way. We had a look round the old (14th/15th century) cathedral-like church, with its very fine old and modern stained glass windows and some amazing needlework displays. Waited in the long Post Office queues to get cards for abroad weighed and then went for a coffee, to pass the time before the pubs opened. We went to the old Crown Hotel and it was a very good choice! For the last hour or two before we went there, it had got a lot colder again, so it was great to see a roaring fire. We enjoyed a most delicious meal, the Cannon of Lamb. Can heartily recommend it! The atmosphere of the place was perfect for a winter evening and afterwards we were ready for the walk back to TQ and hopefully to write the last few cards.
