Up this morning and away down the last three locks to leave Audlem behind. We filled up with water by The Shroppie Fly but the elsan point is currently being refurbished. As usual Ben and I walked but got back onboard further on as Ben is frightened by the noise of the clay pigeon shoot near Coole Pilate. A farmer was muck spreading so we had the awful smell as we cruised. How do they work in that smell?
We pulled in at Nantwich and moored up before the aqueduct, planning to walk across the bridge to get to Nantwich Chandlery but the bridge was closed. We decided to get the boat and moor the other side of the aqueduct, At the chandlers we enquired about replacing our batteries, as we needed them to be fitted. Very obliging staff..... they are being fitted tomorrow at 9am so we'll definitely need the alarm tomorrow. Eric was pleased as they sell Carnuba polish and the wash in a promotional pack for £25, much cheaper than the two bottles sold individually.
The dot in the sky has been found, so we're currently relaxing watching TV after a very nice homemade shepherd's pie for tea.
