Shropshire Union September 2014 Day 4

Tuesday morning, after a boatie breakfast of Bacon and Egg Sandwiches we prepared for our guests, Gill sorting out a buffet type lunch, myself having a tidy up. My cousins from Marple and Cheadle arrived with their partners around 11am and away we went to the winding hole at the end of the embankment, then back through Nantwich before tootling on passed Hurleston Junction. We moored for lunch at Barbridge. After lunch we gave them a locking experience, turning right onto the Middlewich branch to the reasonably deep Cholmondeston lock.

boatmen down Wigan Locks for a bucket of coal.
Jim and Carolyn. 

First time in a lock for them all.
Leaving Cholmondeston Lock.
Carrying on we turned at the next winding hole then made our way slowly back to Nantwich before mooring on the embankment again for the night.

We showed our guests the aqueduct before saying farewell. They really enjoyed the day, made all the better with the good weather and are looking forward to an invite next time we are nearish to Manchester.
Gill and I had all the buffet leftovers, including the rest of the wine for a late tea before relaxing in front of the telly.
