Dover Lock to Dunham Massey
Miles21.5, Locks 0 Lift Bridges 1
An early start today to get to Plank Lane Lift Bridge before "Rush Hour" starts at 8 am. Then a short stop in Leigh for groceries and then on into the heat of the day and the long booring runs to Worsley through Trafford Park and Sale. We were amazed that as we were going over the Barton swing bridge we met two boats coming in the opposite direction. There is still not a good enough connection for pictures but they will come.

Duttons Farm to Dover Lock
Miles 12.7 Locks 8 Swing Bridges 2
We have come through Wigan today and are on the Leigh Branch of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. We spent the day travelling behind a couple from Wales who had been on the Lancaster Canal for 2 months. The lady was working the locks with the "Help" of her 2 young grandchildren so wre very slow . We met up with them at each lock and helped them through..
