Moore Tuesday 6 March 2018

Well after visiting the Charity Shop and the recycling bin not only is the boat lighter but we finally got away at 11am, still heading east. On the edge of Lymm there is a dog agility ground, it looks as if its also used for mass dog exercise, there were a different set of dogs on our return.DSCF0376

Lymm St Peters Church has a very interesting spire so please click the smaller photos for a closer look.

The day was a bit overcast but no rain, unlike last night, good job we hadn't planned to go out to eat.

Just beyond Burford Underbridge (not aqueduct) there is an old canal side building that stands right on the waters edge, the west end looks to be a house, I do wonder if they suffer with damp.DSCF0383

They also have a fine display of snowdrop drifts along the road side.DSCF0389

Quite close to Oughtrington Lane there is a yard that has a few manikins and woodcarvings, there is a new carving since we wereDSCF0380 this way last, the van parked behind it is quite impressive as well.DSCF0395

When we left the moorings in Lymm this morning we were the only boat there, when we returned there were 4. We carried on travelling west with just a very brief stop at Thorne Marine to pick up another brass label showing where the diesel isolation valves are.

We had planned to stop for the night in Moore as there actually some mooring rings there but as its right against the road we carried on for a bit stopping before we reached the science park.
