Off from the mooring at 10:15, and then stopped after 15 minutes to go shopping in Scholar Green. Then off to and through Hall Green stop lock, arriving at Hardings Wood junction at around noon.

I’d seen the Rev Reed’s hotel boats (from an item on “Waterworld”) moored near Church Lawton on my morning run, and we arrived at the junction in time to see them negotiate the tight turn onto the Macclesfield Canal.

Hotel boats "OAK" and "ASH"
Down through the 6 locks of the Red Bull flight, and moored for the night just above Church Lawton.

Church Locks
The day has been bright but with a cool breeze. I’ve resorted back to jeans for today!

Locks 7, miles 4¼.
