End of the Peak forest.

Friday 16. 5 1/2 miles, 1 lift bridge, two tunnels.
After yesterdays hard graft an easy morning was had at the bottom of the locks before heading off through more country side with the odd motorway crossing overhead. The boat got a couple of bruises. the first when we went through a tunnel that was so narrow that the top edge fit the side. The second when a sharp turn to go under the motorway was taken a bit fast and we bounced of the approaches. I hope to improve my skills with time.

Around the corner is the end of the Peak Forest Canal

From our lounge window.
The chimney is owned by a collector of chimneys
