Great Heywood

We have continued northwards along familiar but fantastic countryside, we have moored at Great Haywood in sight of Shugborough Hall. A very pleasant Sunday lunch was enjoyed at the nearby Clifford Arms where we met up with Roly, Bev, Cathy & Martin.

I have been suspecting for some time that the leisure battery alternator I fitted last year has not been performing well. I put a meter on it today and found that the output is low at tickover and disappears to nil when the engine is revved. So a dud then ... unfortunately although it's only been fitted to the engine for less than a year, I purchased it as a spare two years ago so out of manufactures warranty. No matter I will take it for repair at first opportunity I get. The solar panels will keep the battery's in good charge till then.

Moved a short distance today onto the Staffordshire & Worcestershire canal, to moor at Tixall.

Fitted one of these double sockets with usb chargers in the saloon today, will come in handy for phones and tablets.
