May 3rd 2012 The aroma of Rape seed and wild Garlic

Leaving Anderton on another nice bright morning, we stopped at the services just past Anderton Marina to top up with water and dumped some rubbish. Although bright it was slightly cooler than yesterday but never the less it was dry. Cruising was pleasant with the aroma of the Rape seed heavy in the air and through the wooded areas the air was heavy with wild Garlic. We stopped for lunch in Middlewich. Straight after lunch we set about doing the four locks that would take us clear of Middlewich as we head south. Staying on the Trent and Mersey we went through four more locks and finished the day about 2 miles from Wheelock.

Total   15 miles   9 locks
