Radford Bank To Rugeley.......On The Trent & Mersey Canal

Tixall Lock & Cottage


Tixall Wide was deserted

Entering Colwich Lock
This morning we left Radford Bank, Eric cruising and me walking the dogs until we got back onboard. We had some help at Tixall Lock from waiting boaters. Passing through Tixall Wide was a surprise, it looked deserted with just a few boats at one end. We turned right at Haywood Junction and we're now on the Trent and Mersey Canal.


Two locks today and the second  Colwich Lock was easier to open although  it was hard to shut the top gates as we left. We finally stopped and moored up at Rugeley. The boat is going well and it's good that the oil pressure problem is sorted so we don't have a beeping problem.
