Moored In Great Haywood

Moored at Great Haywood, 

Today we left Tixall Wide, it's a much nicer day today, so much  warmer and breezy rather than blowing a gale.  Just before Great Haywood Junction, where the Staffs and Worcester Canal meets the Trent and Mersey Canal, we pulled into the Anglowelsh Boatyard for diesel and gas. They were kind enough to let us fill up with water and empty the cassettes for free, rather than use the CaRT services nearby.We got rid of a bag of rubbish too in the CaRT skips.

Great Haywood Lock

Lockhouse Restaurant......highly recommended!

Moored up before Great Haywood Lock we popped into the village for a Sunday paper, deciding to have Sunday Lunch in The Lockhouse Restaurant, once we put Ben the dog back on the boat. The food was delicious, lovely fresh veg too. The deserts are heavenly too we just couldn't resist them.....I had a berry pavlova while Eric had  apple crumble, so we're totally stuffed and can't think about tea at the moment.

It's quiet now other than the trains from the nearby track, this afternoon has been mayhem with queues of boats waiting to use the lock. Lots of people past by the boat this afternoon too, but they've all gone home for tea.
