Bugsworth to Wood Lanes…

We awoke to dull skies this morning, with heavy rain showers forecast – and they were right!  Sadly, we left Bugsworth Basin at about 9.30 and returned down the Upper Peak Forest to Marple.  The sun did come out for a while, but I didn’t take any photos as I’d taken them all on the way there.  At Marple we turned to port onto the Macclesfield Canal.  Not long after that the heavens opened and the rain slashed down, not stopping until shortly before we decided to call it a day.  I went inside, so didn’t see much of it, so again no photos.  We are now moored for the night opposite Lyme View Marina, not far short of Bollington, and looking forward to Macclesfield tomorrow.
