Winter is such a quiet time, we have been sitting at Nantwich since the twenty-eighth of last month and you could count the number of boats we have seen moving on your fingers. Largely down to the frozen state of the canal.
But today we finally set off for Hurleston and the Welsh Canal, a.k.a. the Llangollen. You may pronounce that as you see fit. Stopped at Nantwich Canal Centre to top up the diesel and were informed that Hurleston was shut until the twenty-second. A rapid check on C&RT's website showed no mention of a stoppage so we set off, hoping. As they say, "It is better to travel in hope than to arrive." We did both.
By the time we reached the top we had decided that we had been cold for long enough, so when we reached the S.U.C.S. moorings by bridge five we called it a day.
