Had a Crap sleep last night, noise from M56 motorway was painful even though we had allowed plenty of distance before mooring.Today's weather looked suspect bout 10.30am, light shower, cloud, but we headed off and it cleared quickly and was pretty mild. Travelled to Runcorn which used to link with the Mersey to Liverpool but since 1966 its become a dead end. The towns old, crappy really, the best part was the trip there and leaving. Walked to the Mersey for a look.
The New, The single span road bridge doing the same.
The dead end of the canal.Through the centre arch there used to be 10 double locks down to the Mersey..
1239 yds long, not quite straight, all brick lined, opened 1776. Only wide enough for one boat.
Travelled another mile and chucked in the piks by bridge 213, washed one side of the boat, that's another day done.
