Hall Green lock. It was here that the tolls were collected from the boatmen as they entered the Macclesfield canal.

The reason for our stop in Scholar Green so soon after starting the day was to see if we could catch up with mates David and Linda who leave in these parts. D &d L used to own Nb. Critical Point and we have cruised with them in the past but haven't seen them for close to three years. When we arrived they were out at a hospital appointment but there was soon a knock on the door and the kettle went on...then a bag got thrown on the deck and a head appeared at the window as yet another cruising mate turned up, Paul of Nb. Enchantress.
'Crowded House'..Joe, David, Linda and Paul
Joe, Linda and David..and a jamming shutter on the camera I think
Setting off again after our catch-up the sun was out and it was just ideal cruising weather
We pass Paul's boat Nb. Enchantress, soon to be up for sale it seems.
No cost spared for the mile markers
look at the workmanship in this bridge..
A typical 'snake bridge'/turnover bridge on the Macc
