Talk about early starts, we were on our way at 0520 this morning. This is a subject that Jill and I do not agree on, I love the early morning when you have the world to yourself whereas Jill regards 0800 as still the middle of the night. As we had a lot of locks ahead of us I got the decision today.
Little remains of the industry that originally lined the canal but between locks 13 and 12 you pass the Red House Glass Cone.
It gets quite interesting here with a little side arm going off to the right,
For anyone planning on coming this way, what were once the secure visitors moorings are now all long term moorings, the basin by the hotels is lined with boats that appear to be glued to the wall and the side arm between locks one and two of The Delph which I have seen recommended on some boaters forums
Watch this space.............
