Saturday 23rd July
Yesterday we travelled through Congleton, we had intended to spend the night but the moorings were in a tree covered cutting making them very dark and dingy so we moved on a bit and found a lovely spot on an embankment with great views.
More climbing today. This canal only has one flight of locks on it. The Bosley Flight is twelve lock,s over a one mile distance, which raises the level 118 ft.
We are now heading for what some consider the the most beautiful canal scenery. I agree that it's very good, but that which I've seen up on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal certainly competes.
Nearly at the top of Bosley Flight
The climb up the flight went fairly well, although most of the locks were against us. They are well maintained making life easier. We stopped about 3 miles short of Macclesfield which we will reach tomorrow.
