Passing Through Stoke

A Bottle Kiln

This morning I had a walk around Westport Lake with Ben and then back onboard to cruise through Stoke-on- Trent hoping it would stay dry to do the locks. I took some photos of the bottle kilns you see on the way through. There's a new development where they have kept a pair of joined kilns intact on the canal side amongst new buildings but I didn't have the camera. After several locks we moored up near Barlaston on a 24 hour mooring so we'll have to move in the morning even if we don't go far. It's now raining again and I expect more of the same tomorrow- it's a Bank Holiday!
