Not staying overnight, just a quick visit to make sure that all is OK in the current cold weather.
It was back November when we were last here and I set the background heater on quite low. So I have turned it up a bit to deal with the winter temperatures.
The canal is frozen, though not completely and probably would be navigable if you dont mind losing your blacking! We had lunch onboard then went to B&Q to do a bit of shopping. We left at about 4 o’clock.
In the new year the BW stoppages limit us to about a three mile stretch from here to Wolverly until March so we probably wont be back that often.
