Back to the Moorings

From Audlem Wharf to Tom's Moorings, a distance of 5 miles, 6¾ flg and 17 locks.

Progress up the locks was, as is becoming a common occurrence, slower than it should have been but not as bad as it has been in the past. It was almost perfect lock working weather – it was dry and warm but not too hot or too sunny.

You often see some odd things when you’re on the canals, either in the canal or on the bank, but part way up the locks we found a solitary lost sole… no sign of the rest of the shoe anywhere and it was rather odd just sitting there on the side of the lock.

A Lost Soul

We made pretty good time back to the moorings where we had brunch and tidied up the boat before heading home.
