We set off at 10:00 to do the rural 12 Bosley locks, we got into a good rhythm, Sue would let me into a lock open one paddle I would do the other paddle and while the lock filled Sue would go to set the next lock while I let FL out and closed the gates. By the time I travelled to the next lock the gates were open ready for FL to enter. Two hours later and we were through the last lock and using the services.
|This bridge between locks 1 & 2 is now a disused railway track.|
|FL having a bubble bath.|
|Great views from the locks.|
|Pulled along side this boat for a bag of coal and bog blue.|
We are now moored at Danes Moss a lovely view from one side of the boat but a landfill site the other, although we can't see it, it has the usual screeching seagulls.

|These unique milestones were buried during WW2 as a precaution against enemy soldiers using them to find their way, they were restored during 1980's by the Macclesfield Canal Society|
