|A bright start to the day moored below Audlem bottom lock|
|The tow path was quite muddy but firm to work on in wellies.|
Once mid way I launched the drone and we walked back down all the while videoing the locks. It was actually quite tricky to keep on course, watch the video feed and walk to follow it all at the same time so Chris became a spotter warning me if the drone got too close to the trees and giving directions to avoid them.
|You can just make out Bumble B as we call it (the white dot in the sky).|
|Chris zoomed in and captured the drone in action.|
Once we reached the Shroppy Fly I packed everything up and we then wandered into the village. St James Church looked resplendent in the morning sun and was a dominant feature of the village. The church dates from the late 13th century with additions in the 19th century. Interestingly the church is not recorded in the Domesday Book for some reason.

|New nestles with old. We could feel right at home in this court yard mews.|

As we came to Coole Pilate moorings we found that they were deserted as far as the eye could see so we moored there for the rest of the afternoon. By now the breeze had fizzled out so the temperature became quite pleasant in the sun and the clouds were beginning to disperse again.
