Eric rang Cox's at Atherton and with their help over the phone removed the Travel Power generator and it's box of tricks. We met him outside The Swan at Fradley and we'll find out once they've tested it if that's really the problem. It was cold waiting so we had coffees from the pub and waited in their little cubby hole which has a heater, obviously the smokers' hangout by the full ash trays.
Above the lock it's less windy, protected by the trees so we won't be battered tonight. Now we're warm and cosy back indoors and Ben is fast asleep.
