Yarwood on the services at Bugsworth Basins
I noticed just as we were about to move off again that the 'door mat' had been left behind on our weekend mooring so I scuttled back toot sweet to recover it. It doesn't save that much mess getting in the boat because of the four of us that live on Yarwood, only two of us bother to wipe our feet..
but every little helps.

And shortly after coming through Carr Swing Bridge we moor up above the Torrs Riverside Park on the outskirts of New Mills.
The River Goyt flows through the valley beneath our mooring and then on through New Mills where it was once an important source of energy for powering the cotton mills built along its banks. After a light lunch - fast day again - we took a walk through the park and into the town and tomorrow I will go off exploring with the dogs while Joe hops a train from Furness Vale into Buxton.
