Our next foray is a trip back to Beverley at the beginning of November to do more work on the house. As its both Mischief and Bonfire Night while we’re away, we’ve secured a place in Uplands Marine on the outskirts of Northwich from Friday afternoon. With a distance of 27.5 miles and 1 lock to cover before then we left Worsley this morning and began our leisurely return along the Bridgewater Canal.
We’d hoped to moor overnight in Lymm but this was not possible as the boats already moored boats there had annoyingly failed to share mooring rings, which meant that they’d left 4ft gaps between each boat. Had they shared rings then at least two further boats of our length could have joined them.
By this time it was raining and so we were not too pleased but motored on to the outskirts of Grappenhall before finding somewhere suitable to stop.
