26 miles, 1 stop lock, 3 tunnels.
The weather started off fine, so we set off early. It stayed ok for most of the day, but then started raining in the afternoon. We have been boating for about a month and so far it has rained every day.
A stop for lunch at the entrance to Peston Brook tunnel was called for. Entrance to the tunnel is time controlled. Southbound boats on the hour until ten past, and northbound half past until twenty to. We arrived just after ten past so had to wait.
After mooring up on Anderton visitor moorings we embarked on a much longer walk than we had planned around the area known as ‘Uplands’. We thought it would a quick 20 minute stroll, but it took about an hour!
