Setting off towards Prees Junction we spotted NB Lois - Jane who blog about their life on the cut NB Lois-Jane moored at Prees Junction.

I pulled over at Cole Mere for an early lunch, we had good views over the Mere.

Moving on after lunch we headed past Blake Mere, when we where caught in a sudden downpour, including hailstone's I had to reach for the brolley, only lasted a few minutes.
The sun then came out for the cruise into Ellesmere, we headed down the arm easily finding a mooring not too near the winding hole. Shame to find that the old Shropshire Union Warehouse has not found a good use yet, sure it would make a nice cafe or restaurant if this is the only way of preserving it.

Leaving Gill to do a little shopping in the town, Father and I walked the long way round to the Mere via the towpath and the Motte and Bailey and then had a look at the older part of the town, some black clouds around but any further rain held off.
