June 28th 2011 Onward to Marple junction

A lazy start today setting off around 10:30. Our plan was to go to Marple Junction, stopping off at Higher Poynton on the way for water. Because of the lack of  water the canal was low and several boats ended up aground when passing. Nearing Higher Poynton there were several Braidbar boats around . These are built in Higher Poynton and have their own owners club.  Probably the most famous was Sanity which was owned by Bruce and Sheila Napier. They started a blog  (living in sanity) when they went to live on board.  They now have a nice new boat aptley named Sanity Again.  In fact Sanity was one of the boats we saw, picture included especially for Bruce and Sheila.

Leaving Higher Poynton we made our way to Marple Juncton and had a nice walk down the sixteen locks before returning for some tea. Tomorrow we make our way to Whaley Bridge.
