On the move again today, we headed off towards waters meeting, where the Bridgewater splits. The canal here is bounded by mostly modern looking business units. At the junction, to the left it heads for Manchester centre and the Rochdale Canal, turn right for Lymm, Preston Brook and The Trent & Mersey. Taking the latter course our surroundings quickly change to housing and the canal passes through Stretford, Ashton upon Mersey, and Sale. At Ashton there looks to be good mooring with access to shopping, but we don't need that after yesterday.
Our goal today was Little Bollington, where there is walking access to Dunham Massey Hall, a NT property with some interesting features, including a water powered saw mill. We'll take a look tomorrow.
