Back to Market Drayton

From Shebdon Visitor Moorings (The Wharf Inn) to Tom's Moorings, a distance of 7 miles, 5¼ flg and 5 locks.

We made an earlyish start, but still not that early and, once again, no boats were on the move… in fact we saw no moving boats until we got to Goldstone Wharf where we met a boat that had just cast off and was heading south.

When we got to Tyrley Top Lock No 3 there was a boat going into the lock, but they had a Volunteer Lockie with them who got them to wind up a top paddle when they were leaving the lock so we made pretty good progress down the locks as most of them were just about ready when we got there.

We got back to the moorings, moored up, put the power on and tidied up the boat before heading home.
