Our eldest daughter Vicki and her fiancée Tom joined us on Monday afternoon at the top of the Hurleston Flight for a weeks’ holiday. It was extremely quiet and we shared the flight with just one other boat.
Hurleston Flight of Locks.
We moored at Wrenbury for the evening and went to the Cotton Arms for a very nice meal, the gammon steak is huge!!

After a cooked breakfast this morning we had a lovely days’ cruising. It rained moderately for about 2 1/2 hours but didn’t dampen our spirits.

The staircase locks at Grindley Brook were also quiet, so no waiting to go up the flight. As normal, entry to first three locks was a bit hairy due to the side spill weirs.
We are moored tonight at Hampton Bank just below bridge 50. with fantastic views to the Welsh Hills.
“Chance” for a sit down and a glass of wine after cleaning the boat down.
17 miles and 10 locks today.
