Unable to proceed all I could do was offer advice whilst trying to keep AmyJo still in the water. Eventually he reversed under the bridge so I could get out of the way. Chris held AmyJo to the side whilst, at the hirer's request, I talked him round the turn. After that we made for Barbridge.
Now its common knowledge that the purpose of the Llangollen canal is as a feeder for the reservoir here at Hurleston which provides drinking water for Crewe. What I'd like to know though is what the purpose of this tunnel looking opening is for. Anyone have any ideas? It appears to pass under the reservoir but I cannot see why.

Sunday morning was a much more pleasant with plenty of sunshine and quite pleasantly warm at times. The clouds were building but there was still plenty of sun. Chris tried to photograph sun rays coming from behind this cloud but they do not show up as well on the photo.

Chris is now darn Sarf visiting her mum so I'm tidying up and packing everything away as we will be in the marina for a while now. Back to work tomorrow, Tuesday. Hay ho all good things come to an end... but not for too long.
