Cautious progress to Middlewich

From Anderton Marina to Middlewich Visitor Moorings (main line), a distance of 9 miles, 4¼ flg and 1 lock.

Left Anderton Marina after conducted tour of boat and crash course in boat handling, mooring etc.

  1. It never occurred to us at the time that unlike a car or a caravan you didn’t need to moor up to make a cup of tea!
  2. There were no instructions on the boat so we had to work everything out for ourselves as there was no-one around…
