Retracing Our Steps.......

Today we were up and away by from Froghall, as the moorings are 24 hours only. We did have another boat on the moorings overnight but they were up and away very early.  I walked with Ben while Eric cruised as far as Flint Mill Lock, then I got back onboard as there were so many bikes and dogs on the towpath. I enjoyed the trip on the River Churnet  in lovely sunshine. A few boats about today but it was still  a case of turning most of the locks to use them.

At Cheddleton Locks, we did meet a boat coming down the locks and at the top we continued straight ahead towards Etruria. We finally stopped at the Visitor Moorings at Park Lane Wharf, where the services for this canal are situated. Lots of boats using the facilities but tonight just three boats have stayed put. Eric thinks it's a  good mooring spot as he has the satellite signal he wanted to watch the Canadian Grand Prix.

We're moored opposite a field of yellow  buttercups, a lovely sight!
