A last bit of shopping, then we were off again, heading roughly eastward. The Shropshire countryside is attractive, very rural, with just the occasional village.
One of the long straights across Whixall Moss leads to the Prees Branch, intended to go further than it’s current terminus after about a mile. It’s now the home of Whixall Marine.

We stopped for the night just after Bridge 43 at 15:30.
Just one lift bridge today, typical of those on this canal.
