And so to the end of the Trent & Mersey

Thursday 26th September 2013
The last few miles of the T&M canal slipped by this morning. Four more of the heavy double locks.

 Shardlow is supposed to be one of the best remaining examples of a "canal village". There is still plenty of local work based on the canal.

 As we expected the flood gates at Shardlow were open. The last lock then dropping us down to Derwent Mouth, where the waters of the rivers Trent and Derwent meet to become one big river

Sawley Flood Lock was also open so we cruised onto Sawley Cut with no delays.
here we will stay tonight.
Here we are tonight
