Middlewich canal

After a good nights sleep we woke to an overcast day with a cold breeze. We continued our trip South down the Shropshire Union, sharing the double locks with a time-share boat and elderly crew. As a result good progress was made through the Bunbury Staircase locks ( 15 ft ) , Tilston Lock (10 ft) and Beeston stone lock (8.5 ft ), took on water and emptied the cassette loos, before taking a sharp left turn onto the Middlewich where we replenished our calor gas supply at Barbridge Marina ( not cheap ! )
Phoebe blotted her perfect record by disappearing for over an hour, causing Lynne to panic and rush up and down the canal bank. Eventually Phoebe turned up on the bow, meowed and went back to  bed, totally unphased !!!
We moored on the Middlewich.
