Audlem Friday 31 March 2017

Last night we wandered into town looking for somewhere to eat and finally settled on Simply Thai which you may have guessed is a Thai Restaurant. We had the cheapest meal for 2 and just managed to finish it, so good sized portions.

Today we didn't set off until after lunch when we cruised as far as Audlem.

We were lucking in meeting a boat at both of the Hack Green Locks. I don't think the hand made sign is really required here as its fairly obvious its an obstruction.

Brian was hard at work as a Shropshire Union Canal Society Volunteer treating the picnic benches to a fresh coat of wood preservative. The SUCS maintain lots of moorings along this and the Llangollen canal. clip_image004You can find a full list of their moorings HERE

The community garden is still flourishing at Audlem Bottom Lock, it seams that CRT have relented and are letting it continue, its on the piece of land on the off side of the lock. clip_image006

We went up through the second lock before mooring for the night just behind the floating sweet shop, luckily they were not open so we were not tempted.

The Shroppie Fly pub kitchens are closed again for refurbishment yet again and reading Trip adviser it seams its under new management yet again.
