Market Drayton to Gnosall

Miles 13.4 Locks 5
We spent yesterday in Market Drayton and went shopping, I was dissapointed that the market was not on so we were back quite early and spent the afternoon finishing the touch-up to the roof painting and chatting to other boaters.Shortly after setting off this morning we were at the Tyrley locks and to our good fortune two gentlemen were helping boats up and down the locks. Aparently they do it for pleasure and were on the Wolverhampton 21 yesterday.
The famous wharf at Knighton at the Northern end of the Shebdon Embankment

At the Southern end the line of moored boats on the off side streaches for almost two miles. A long way on "tickover"
High Bridge is a sign that Norbury is not far off
At Norbury junction we stopped for water and other essentials . Before Tea we went for a walk round what is properly known as Gnosall Heath. Tomorrow should see us on the Staffs and Worcester canal somewhere south of Wolverhampton.
