We travelled sixteen miles from Anderton on the Trent & Mersey Canal to Lymm on the Bridgewater Canal today, passing through three tunnels and one stop lock.

We timed our arrival at each tunnel to perfection, albeit quite by accident, as we didn’t have to wait before entering.   Two of the tunnels are crooked and are not wide enough for boats to pass so a timed entry system operates.  Despite the occasional appearance of threatening clouds we stayed dry.
