August 18th 2012 Market Drayton

]We moored last night at Norbury Junction and with no signal we were unable to blog. Today we have had a gentle cruise to Market Drayton. With rows of moored boats on route the average cruise speed was reduced. Also on route there were some narrow cuttings and with a lot of boats about we spent some time stationary waiting to get through. At Woodseaves cutting the tow path is closed to walkers and at one point there are buoys set to guide boats round a landslip caused by all the rain we have had. Today though has been warm and sunny; hopefully it will continue.

Tight fit through Norbury Junction
