Woke up this morning and realised that we had managed to moor on a ledge and due to the water levels changing the boat was leaning heavily to the left! Eventually managed to get off the mooring and through the remaining four locks of the flight we started yesterday.
Lovely and sunny but pretty windy today – although I understand in London they have rain so mustn’t grumble!
We stopped at Bridge 85 in Hack Green to visit the Secret Nuclear Bunker, then carried on through two more locks to Nantwich – another lovely town. Apparently prosperous since Roman times because of its salt springs. Nantwich was the country's main salt-mining centre until the 19th C.
The canal is high up here and you can see for miles between the gaps in the trees!
|We need to get off this ledge!|
|Can you see the boat leaning!|
|It's not a secret anymore with a sign like that!|
|Christmas dinner the year Steve was born.|
|Nuclear Missile Head.|
|Remembering our visit to Hack Green Secret Bunker!|
|The female dormitory.|
|And outside - amazing they managed to keep it a secret!|
|Back on lock duty!|
|Nantwich - The town was devastated by fire in 1583 but rebuilt in fine Tudor style.|
|Some very small cottages either side of this Tudor style cottage.|
|Buildings of all shapes and sizes and styles.|
|The Cheshire Cat Inn - a place of historical interest.|
|Heading back from town - looking up at the aqueduct - we are moored up there to the left so will go over it in the morning when we leave.|
