A Change of Plans

From Middlewich Visitor Moorings (main line) to Stanthorne Lock No 3, a distance of 22 miles, 2½ flg and 9 locks.

Boys up early and out exploring. Brought back some teasles. Went through locks onto Middlewich branch of Shropshire Union to Hurleston Junction. Llangollen canal closed due to a lock collapse, tunnel 1Harecastle closed on route south, so big conference on what to do. Turned back. Pouring with rain, bought kagoules and waterproof trousers at Venetian Marina, boys stayed on deck and steered all the way back to Stenthorne Look and loved it. Moored for night.
