After a restful day at Burland, we set off for Wrenbury. At Swanley no. 2 lock there was an interesting C&RT notice pinned to one of the top gates.
Whilst on the subject of dubious signs.
The Welsh canal is actually an artificial branch of the River Dee, taking its water at the Horseshoe Falls at LLantisilio and feeding the reservoir at Hurlaston. This means there is a constant flow down the canal. It is most noticeable at locks where it runs down the by-wash at a fair rate of knots.
As we approached Wrenbury we encountered the first of the lift bridges for which this canal is well known.
We haven't travelled far today, only to just above Marbury lock. Weather forecast not too good for tomorrow and the Six Nations at the weekend. may well be Monday before we move.
