Congleton to Wheelock

Miles 13.3 Locks 27 Congleton to Wheelock.

This is our mooring spot last night. We passed Louis D’Or at Ramsdel Hall on our way to Hall Green stop lock at the junction of the Macclesfield Canal and the Trent & Mersey Canal. We were then on our descent of Heartbreak Hill. The locks down to Maklin Bank were all with us but there our delays started .A Middlewich Narrowboats hire craft had unseated his rudder and was being towed back to base. The boat had to be bowhauled both in and out of the lock and his tug had to work through too. There was a queue of at least three boats at each lock for the last eight into Wheelock. To cap it all the lovely sunny day we set out in turned to be one with light rain – at least it was warm!.
