We’ve been on a trip today as our batteries are suffering from lack of action. Today we returned to Barbridge Junction, (10 miles and six locks), which only took five hours. This just shows how little distance we’ve covered in three weeks! When we moored up we discovered we’d had an email from Canal River Trust advising us that the route into Chester is now open ahead of schedule so we’re heading back towards Chester tomorrow. Our batteries should now last us until after Christmas.
