Friday 27th May
Yesterday we retraced our steps from Trevor, and in less than fine weather we plodded on as far as the top of New Marton locks. Here we decided to spend the night. Our plan was to get to Frankton Junction, this leads onto the Montgomery Canal by 09.30, this was the time stated on the canal book that the locks would be open. When we got there we found that the times had changed and they now open once a day 12.00 until 14.00. This spoiled our timing somewhat but not enough to cause trouble. We'll now spend two days here instead of one.
We had been told this canal was very beautiful, and they didn't lie. Because the number of boats is restricted by the short lock opening times it isn't busy and there is only one place to shop near the canal in the entire navigable length, only 7 miles, and that, we are told is very limited.
I was going to put a picture with this post, but the computer signal signal around here is too poor and won't accept it so I'll do it at a later date when I can.
