Up, Up, Up Audlem To Adderley Locks

White water locking
We set off from Audlem after filling up with water outside The Shroppie Fly, the first lock of the day was like white water boating. We were in luck today as every lock bar one was ready for us and many had a boat coming out of so gates could be left open. If the lock gates ahead were closed I walked ahead to get them opened while Eric came up in the lock below. Ben and Poppy had a bit of a walk before getting back on the boat, where they watched all that was going on.
Ben's turn to look way
I think they like each other!
We decided to complete the flight and then I could walk the dogs to the moorings below Adderley Locks, where the tow path is a wide grassy area. Here's some boaty pictures on the way up, up, up.

In a pound between two locks at Audlem
The dogs enjoyed their walk and Eric pulled in and moored up on Adderley Visitor Moorings. We had a healthy salad followed by a cream tea from the kitchen of Kynsal Farmhouse at Audlem Top Lock........very nice too!
