Market Drayton to Goldstone Wharf…

Tuesday 14th June

It was a beautiful morning when we pulled the pins and set off to meander up Tyrley Locks.  We queued for a while at the first lock, and then again half way up, but all in all, not too slow a trip.  This flight is another of our favourites, being the first place we came to gongoozle before our first hire-boat holiday, to watch and learn so we didn’t make complete arses of ourselves.  After Tyrley, we entered Woodseaves cutting, and were glad to get into the shade as we were getting really hot by then.  We moored just after the cutting at Goldstone Wharf, a couple of hours tomorrow to Norbury to await our engine service on Thursday.
