Cruising Grindley Brook To Wrenbury

Ben off on his walk but waiting for me

Today Ben and I walked from below Grindley Brook  getting back on the boat after Quiosley Lock to give him a rest, he hasn't walked that far for a while.  On the way we worked through Povey's and  Willy Moor Lock  made easier when there was a boat approaching which meant I could leave the bottom gates open. At Quoisley Lock we bought some eggs from the old guy who usually helps people through the lock. He now has milk, bread and bacon as well as vegetables, eggs  and wood.....so if you need bacon butties he may be able to help.

Waiting before  Willymoor Lock

Just Marbury Lock and we were not far from Wrenbury today's overnight stop before the electric lift bridge. Nobody moored there so we had a spot not under trees to give the solar panels some light. I walked into the village to get bread and milk through the field next to the church earmarked for a 200 berth marina if the planning permission is granted. The locals certainly don't want with Save Wrenbury signs in the village and notices on the field gates.
