Wheelock to Church Minshal

Miles 11 Locks 7
A very breezy day today. We left Wheelock with the wind on the bows which made the last 5 locks into Middlewich hard work especially the two alongside the salt works. The office blocks and other buildings on the approach to Rumps lock are being demolished. We stopped in Middlewich after a swift passage of the Wardle canal reputed to be the shortest canal in England, one bridge, one lock and about 50 yards of canal.
See for yourselves.

After Stanthorne lock on the Middlewich Branch of the S.U. the canal turns south and at last the wind was from behind. Moored up at 4.30 on the Church Minshal moorings by bridge 14.
