Broken Cross Wednesday 22 March 2017

Last night we walked up to the Stanley Arms to eat. Not the slickest of operations but good food and good sized portions, the beer was well presented as well, better than some we have had this week. Just as we were leaving it started to rain and continued until lunch time today.
We set off at 9-30 stopping at Anderton Service point to fill up with water and dump the rubbish and then on to The Lion Salt Museum, still in the rain. We had a 10% discount to enter the museum as we went to Weaver Hall, the Salt museum in Northwich and the are under the same management, West Cheshire Museums.  As soon as we went into the museum it stopped raining, but boy was it cold in there, if you go wrap up warm.
As we were returning to the boat for lunch we noticed that The Salt Barge  pub was doing main course lunch for £5 so we went in there to be greeted but a roaring open fire. The food was good as well with 4 choices, Curry, Fish & Chips with mushy peas, Gammon, egg and chips or a vegetarian meal.
Back on the boat we headed on for a bit to moor outside The Old Broken Cross for the night, tonight's venue for dinner and it has started to rain again.
