We took a walk back to the junction with the Trent and Mersey Canal and turned left to see the Middlewich Boats site now abandoned.
Further up is the Big Lock pub and last time we were here there was a block of flats newly built next door. Now they extend for about another 250 metres.
We thought the pound between the top lock 74 and middle lock 73 was a bit low when we walked out, when we came back...
There was the odd tyre, a large road sign, bits of guttering and loads of fenders. No bicycles, supermarket trolleys, safes, guns or bodies though.
Being as we're in Middlewich it would be rude not to visit the fish and chip shop in Booth Lane. We always have fish and chips from here when we visit Middlewich, probably the best fish and chips in the world.
Later in the afternoon we slipped our moorings and headed out into the countryside.
