Audlem And Beyond

Under Audlem Bridge

Approaching the rapids at Lock 12

In the pound before Lock 13

 Approaching Lock 13

We left our overnight mooring at Hack Green and before we knew it we were approaching Audlem. There were few boats on the move and the boat went really well with more water underneath her compared to the Llangollen Canal.

At Audlem we met a queue of boats coming down the flight but  no queue going up and at the visitor moorings near Audlem Mill there wasn't a boat so we moored up. I wanted to get a few postcards for my dad and pick up some fresh food at the Coop.

I took a few photos before I left the camera on the boat and carried on working through the rest of the flight. We shared the lock wheeling and steering the boat.....I soon got the hang of putting the boat in the lock although the side overflows made it tricky and there was some gentle contact.

We decided to complete the flight  of fifteen locks and carried on cruising until we reached the moorings below Addersley Locks......they can wait until tomorrow.
