We've been out of touch for a few days because orange data wasn't available in the area we were moored in.
On Sunday we puttered along to Macclesfield where we intended to moor up and then spend Monday having a look around. We had also planned on seeing my cousin Lynton Monday after noon but unfortunately he couldn't' make it.
When we got the Macclesfield we were disappointed to find that the mooring was almost non-existent. Room for about 3 boats along a poorly maintained bank with the side so shallow we couldn't get anywhere near to it. It's a real shame that the town doesn't make more of this facility.
Not being able to moor there we moved on as far as Bollington, a pretty village a few miles away, and got a reasonable mooring there.
On Monday Cath twisted her knee and was in some pain so couldn't negotiate the steep steps down to the village. I decided to take a bus into Macclesfield to have a look around. The silk mill and museum are great places.
