Tuesday August 15th
Set off from Church Lawton about 09:15 and topped up at Red Bull to dilute the Wheelock water.
Passed Hardings Wood junction with the Macclesfield Canal leaving on the right.

Arrived at Harecastle Tunnel around 13:00 and had a 45 min wait.

Out of the south portal about 14:30.

Moored up near Middleport North of Stoke, next to Westport Lake. Good mooring, pleasant area.

Unlike Monday, there seemed to be little Northerly traffic, so we had empty each lock as we came to it.

4 miles, 6 locks, 2926 yds of tunnel.
