It's great to be out of the city, the canals were built to connect coal, industry and ports, these parts of the system are great in their own historic way but we prefer the rural isolated villagey bits.
Five miles from Autherley junction is Wheaton Aston and Turners garage where the fuel hose can reach down to the canal to refuel the boats, a gas bottle was purchased too.

We were to retrace our steps back to Autherley junction which meant reversing back through Wheaton Aston bridge so we could turn at the winding hole and back to Wheaton Aston lock.
Hunting bridge was our mooring point again, bankside chairs were out for a convivial afternoon before tea time.
