|Morning sunshine but dark clouds loom|
|The Dover Lock Inn|
Not long into the cruise and we had a short spell of rain but after that the sky cleared a little and sun came out again for the rest of the day.
The canal here is wide and straight for several miles with not much to blog about. At Bridgewater Marina we stopped briefly to diesel up and top up with water. The young staff here were extremely helpful, running out the water hose for us whilst topping up the diesel tank with military precision. At 75p the price was not too bad but worth it considering the service given.
By 1.30pm we approached Worsley. We had promised ourselves we would stop here if we could. I slowly turned under the bridge by the packet house and found only one boat moored there.
|We knew we were getting close to Worsley as the water was turning Orange|
|Passing under the A572 with the mainline off to the right, one comes into Worsley|
|Almost there and nb Serendipity just round the corner|
|Moored up for the rest of the day|
|The news agents is opposite the small green by the canal|
|Filled in Lime kiln memorial.|
|Fly boat Dee alongside the dry docks|
|Looks expensive here|
|Bright orange water.|
|Worsley packet house|
|Mine entrance and barriers omitting access|
|The fountain now a memorial to the site workshops.|
An easy cruise today that puts us within easy reach of Manchester city center Tomorrow and new waters yet again.
