The sun was out again and our little spot in the basin was so warm and peaceful we were in no hurry to leave. We do so love it here but our 48 hours were up so time to go.

We slipped off the mooring and crept passed the boats moored in the middle basin and their crews out in chairs taking in the sunshine.
|I never tire of views like this|

|Boat on the water point so we pulled in just in front of him.|
|Visitor moorings are just beyond these long term moorings.|

The role of the warehouse expanded - in addition to providing a venue for unloading of materials for delivery to Whaley Bridge, it now became a major interchange between the canal and the railway. The wharf area was increased in 1832; extension sidings were constructed to improve access from the railway to the canal and covered by a single storey extension to the existing warehouse which now stretched over five bays and offered both improved headroom and more space for rapid transhipment.
|This is also home to the large diner boat was witnessed winding at Bugsworth|
In the distance we could see the railway line that runs to the bridge we thought was Marple aqueduct so the noise of the trains would not be a problem or so we thought. What we had not realised another line ran right alongside the canal where we are moored. Fortunately this line is only a district line so not many trains are running up this one.
