Radford Bank Onwards- Up The Trent and Mersey Canal

Today we didn't leave Radford Bank until eleven in the morning, Ben and I walked for a while but it was incredible hot and muggy so it wasn't a long walk today. We passed quite a few boats and found just one ahead of us at Tixall Lock. There were a few spaces on the Wide but we decided we'd go further today.
 
 
We  turned left at Haywood Junction and pulled in to a totally deserted  water point to top up the tank and get rid of the rubbish. Then we were on our way up the T & M Canal. Don't know how far we'll get today but we need a mooring with no road noise......you could hear the traffic at Radford Bank.
