Thursday 12 February

We were awake early and by 9.30am we were on our way to Morrisons for some groceries.   With the cupboards restocked, we set off and winded a mile south of Nantwich and retraced our steps, pausing at the service station to deal with waste and fill up with water. So we don’t offend sensitive ears we refer to these stations as the “4 ‘w’s”.

Lock 3 of 4 at Hurleston, Llangollen Canal

 

We went back as far as Hurleston Junction and there we turned into the Llangollen Canal.   It is four years since we were last here when we had a mooring in Wrenbury for six months in 2011.   It was nice to retrace our way along familiar territory and we reached Wrenbury before mooring for the night. (9 miles, 9 locks and 1 lift bridge).

A trip to the Cotton Arms may be on the agenda for this evening.

Beef stew for dinner tonight. (This has been sitting on the stove for two days now so should be really tender.)
