Congleton

After bacon banjo's we set off in a windy morning, the forecast was for a dry day as the heavens had emptied during the night. We pass through gentle rolling hills to the right and a deep valley to the left. Bungalows line the right bank on the approach to Congleton with their neatly clipped gardens in spring flower.

We pass a couple of Roving bridges designed so the tow rope didn't require unhitching while the horse changed towpath sides.
Clip clop up the right over the bridge down the left and under the bridge

We moor in town near Morris Bridge (76) to walk down the hill to Morrisons for supplies, oat cakes are bought from a deli for lunch, Sue bought bait from the local tackle shop and after a quick cuppa back at the boat, we were on our way to Bosley Lock flight.

Seen this cow somewhere before.

Short legged cows.

This  1000ft high fell goes by the name of The Cloud
We moor for the night just before the river Dane aqueduct, we will ascend the 12 Bosley locks tomorrow.
