Anderton to Stockton Heath (10 miles, 1 lock, 3 tunnels and some baking).
This is the entrance to Saltersford Tunnel which is only 424 yards long but is quite crooked – you can’t see through so you can only enter on the hour going east. We also went through Barnton Tunnel 572 yards and Preston Brook Tunnel 1239 yards.
Max also tumbled in today. He was taken by surprise by a man walking his goat along the towpath. Max did a double take and lost his footing and fell off the roof of the boat. He wears a harness so we can grab him and he was soon back on board, just a little wet and a little shocked.
