Happy New Year! We woke to wind and rain rocking the boat and eventually were persuaded to get up by Max who was keen to stretch his legs. By lunch-time the rain had stopped and the wind had dropped a little so we decided to motor on. I walked along the tow path with Max slithering and sliding through the mud. A couple of miles and four locks later we stopped at Calverley where we both enjoyed a hot shower, whilst filling up with water. The weather deteriorated mid afternoon so we decided to stay put and moored up for the night.
Our plans for January involve headings towards Manchester where we hope to spend some time in Castlefield Basin.
