The weather changed a little overnight. We awoke to a rather chilly, misty morning. The spiders had had fun during the night, there were webs everywhere!
It was so misty that we couldn’t see the cooling towers of Ratcliffe power station that usually dominate the skyline around here. For most of today and part of tomorrow we are repeating part of our 2012 trip on the way back from York. The first part of the Trent & Mersey from Shardlow to Burton has deep,wide locks with heavy gates. We were tired by the time we got to Weston on Trent, so we stopped early and went for a pleasant walk around the village.
