Wednesday 18 March

We left Whilley Moor Lock and headed for Hurleston Junction (10 miles, 11 locks and two lift bridges).

After early morning mist, the sun soon burst through and our journey was lovely in the sunshine.

We had a bit of a wait at the top of Hurleston locks while the two boats in front of us let some extra water through so they could proceed as the water level in the pounds between the locks was quite low.

There was enough water for us to pass down through the four locks without running aground and once through we turned towards Nantwich and moored up just clear of the junction.
