Weaver Navigation & Chester (Monday 7/8/2017) - Winsford Bottom Flash Basin to Vale Royal Moorings

Engine hours start: 300.2 end: 301.5hr = 1.25 hours

Miles:3 Locks:0 Lock miles 3

Splendid egg, bacon and mushroom sandwichs to strengthen us for the walk up hill to Winsford Cross Shopping Centre. Not the most inspiring setting but able to stock up with groceries at Asda including the makings for crumble using the blackberries picked near Northwich!

(Winsford shopping centre also plays a crucial role in later excitements...)

A lazy morning back at the boat, cheese sandwich lunch then a slow move to Vale Royal moorings for the night. Really lovely spot.

Tight squeeze near Winsford
On the way, took a picture of the near blockage from drooping willow and sent by Twitter to CRT. They are apparently already aware of it and local team dealing with it...

Alison went for a walk while Andrew had a siesta then both went for another walk round the lock after dinner.

Beautiful sunset.
