Dutton Breach

We have returned down the Bridgewater to the Trent and Mersey without  incident and have moored on the centre point of the Dutton Breach, responsible for closing the canal from September 2012 until May 2013. Pushing our luck? 
The view from Duttons Breach, Trent& Mersey canal
It is a bit of a shock to the system as The Bridgewater is mostly straight ( apart from the tunnels )and averages 60 feet wide, whereas the T & M is of normal canal proportions and bendier. The former has no locks whilst the latter has lots. If you wish to learn how to handle a narrowboat I would suggest the Bridgewater. 
The day started with showers but finished with sunshine and a very cold wind. We are an hour or two from Sadie's disappearance spot so should arrive tomorrow morning,but still no news.
