Another dull and cloudy morning, with the promise of more rain showers. When we left our mooring it was still dry, but before long we got wet. Again and again and again and again!!! Bollington looked nice, but no time to stop as we need to push on now so that we reach the Middlewich branch in time to take up our booked mooring for a fortnight while we go back to Northampton to move out of the cottage that we rented for the winter. All our goods and chattels are going back into storage and we will decide what to do in the autumn.
Today was a day of mills. I know we aren’t as far north as we have been on this trip, but all the mill towns make it feel well and truly ‘up north’. The Macc is very pretty, just a pity we are seeing most of it through a haze of rain!
We continued on through Macclesfield, again in the rain, and are now moored about 15 minutes short of Bosley Locks, ready to tackle them in the morning. Jodrell Bank is just visible in the distance, one of the huge satellite dishes just poking up beyond the trees.
10.5 miles and 0 locks
