Wednesday 22 October

We left Plank Lane in sunshine and calm waters and headed back to Leigh where we stopped briefly at Aldi for more gin and some dog food.

By early afternoon we’d arrived at our intended destination of Worsley, where we filled up with water and moored up opposite the village shop.

We spent the rest of the afternoon on a reconnaissance mission on foot to locate Patricroft Station and to find out how to acquire tickets for our journey to Chester as our babysitting services are needed this weekend.

Having discovered that we could walk to the station or catch a bus that would drop us off relatively close by, and that we’d need to buy tickets on the train as there was neither ticket office nor machine at this delightful, tumble weed strewn station, and we’d need to travel back on Monday as there was no Sunday service, we returned to the positively posh village of Worsley and packed our bags ready for the morning.
