Saturday 18 June. 7 miles, 1 lock, 1 tunnel.
Overcast morning. Worth the risk so put some gunk around the window. On the move by 1030 at a leisurely pace and at times in sunshine. Stopped for water at the not vert deep stop lock, in fact the drop would have been less than a foot. It was there to stop one canal company from pinching the water of anothers. Just before joining the Trent & Mersey canal we moor up for lunch. 30 minutes after we set off again we are waiting at the entrance to the one way Harecastle tunnel. About an hour later we go through by our selves popping out the other end in 35 minutes, just 1 mile short of The Poteries. Moored up at Westport Lake for the 5th time. So ends a day without rain and we spent some of it underground.
