Wednesday 19 February

A glorious sunny morning and we moved off up the remaining 13 locks comprising the Audlum flight.  Storm opted to steer today and I went off to set the first lock.  It was so warm I soon ditched my hat, gloves and coat.


At the top of the flight we saw our first sight of snow on the Welsh hilltops.  Amazing considering today was the warmest day this year so far.


We’d cleared the flight by 12.30pm and continued on to a mooring site at Adderley for lunch.   After letting this settle we continued on through the next five locks and headed for Market Drayton before calling it a day.
