|All heading off to sunnier climes maybe?|
Stopped just above Kings Lock in Middlewich, it would be rude not to have fish and chips from the very fine f & c shop across the road - t'were delicious.
Onward finds us through Kings Lock, left onto the Wardle Canal and it's lock, then up to Stanthorn Lock where we caught up with some guys in their late fifties/early sixties who didn't have a clue what they were doing. As I approached, one of them said "Ah, you must be the lock keeper, [I chuckled] how do I ...?". I explained and they were grateful.
Today I've tightened the stern gland and refilled the greaser; it drips no more.
Moored up now, enjoying the early summer sunshine, long may it last.
