Above Pierpoint locks

A day of not enough water! We set off at 7:50 and were soon up through the 3 Middlewich locks, and on round to Kings lock. From there on the water levels were gradually dropping. Just after Wheelock it was down over a foot. We had thought of stopping for the night, but we were concerned that if dropped further overnight then we could be stuck on the mud by morning.

So we pressed on ’til we came to a longish pound with more water in. Above Pierpoint looked ok, so we stopped and kept an eye on the levels.
