|Ben at Great Haywood|
We enjoyed the sunshine and cruised towards Colwich Lock where we had just one boat ahead of us. Once again the gates were heavy and one didn't want to shut. One of the blokes from another boat came to help. There was a long queue of boating waiting to go towards Great Haywood. We carried on to Rugeley, moored up and did the shopping. The canal bridge has been pedestrianised so it's safer to get to Morrisons and there's now a big new Tesco's on the towoath side of the canal.We decided to stay put until the mooring although most of the boats shop and then leave Rugeley.
