On the move
As we approached Gurnett Aqueduct we passed Andy and Sue on Nb. Festina Lente.
Yarwood crossing the Gurnett Aqueduct
Foden Bank Bridge..a snake bridge taking the towpath from one side of the canal to the other
Yarwood approaching Foden Bank Bridge
The next stretch of canal is below the substantial stone wall the holds back the Foden Bank
Repairs to the towpath underway as we approach Macclesfield
This section of towpath was closed to pedestrians five years ago when we passed through here as the stone abutments were under construction..squished walkers would have been a bit of an inconvenience.
The much photographed and iconic Hovis Mill in Macclesfield
Just pass the Hovis Mill, a lovely preserved and renovated/converted mill building, are the advertised visitor moorings and thinking that a weekend stay in Macclesfield would be rather pleasant we attempted to moor up...
until we were through Bollington.
The snake bridge is so 'inviting'...come this way
Where did they come from?
Yarwood passing Clarence Mill
And after two attempts we managed to get in on pins just outside Bollington at Whitley Green where we will stay over the weekend and possibly Monday as well.
