Moore–Little Bollington…

Yesterday we continued on towards Manchester, stopping at Lymm on the way for a look around and a few provisions.  It continued to be very windy, but we still had blue skies.  We passed under the M6 – the M6 on a Bank Holiday?  I don’t think so!!

The Bridgewater Canal is very scenic, with wide-open vistas, and shady cuttings.  Just a pity that it has been so windy since we got on it as we probably haven’t enjoyed it as much as we might have, had it been less windy.

Lymm is a charming little town, with a brook which has carved a deep gorge through the limestone.  The gorge has been transformed into a park – The Dingle.

Having watered and loo’ed  on the way, we moored near Little Bollington.
