Up Audlem Locks With A Little Help

After we'd topped up the water tank we were ready to go, with thirteen locks to work through. We were able to leave some top gates open with boats coming down and they left the locks ready for us. We did have some welcomed help too from two youngsters on bikes, armed with windlasses who set the next lock for us. Their parent's boat was moored at Coxbank broken down and they were bored! They helped us through the rest of the locks to Coxbank and were rewarded with some pocket money.

Just two more locks to do and we moored up Adderley visitor moorings, thirteen locks was enough for one day. Eric was on light duties only which meant no heavy lock gates to open or shut. Currently relaxing even the dog's asleep.
