Thursday 8 January

The grey clouds have gone and we’re enjoying clear bright blue skies again.  We left Ellesmere Port after filling our water tanks and watching another boat travel along the Ship Canal.

To fill with water,  involved moving the boat forward beyond the security fencing to the museum.  One would expect the Museum to showcase its facilities, but this is not the case.  They are not accessible on foot and there is a distinct lack of mooring rings on a very slippery quayside which is home to the  ducks – so much for Health & Safety.

We winded and motored three miles before mooring up in open countryside beside Bridge No 138 (Densions Bridge) which carries the footpath into Stoak village.  The nearest mooring to Stoak village lies under Junction 15 of the M53/M56 so mooring where we did ensures a quieter night’s sleep.  We hope to visit the Bunbury Arms later as it keeps a nice range of Real Ales.
