Some of the locks on this canal still have their top gate paddle, but even when opened fully the water goes out to each side and not over the bows of the boat.
Market Drayton has some interesting restrictions which I don't understand the reason for. Take fishing, a fisherman can sit on the visitor mooring fishing opposite the long term moorings for about half the year, for the other half they cant.
Once we finished shopping we set off again back towards Nantwich, we didn't see a single boat on the move all afternoon and of course when we arrived at Adderley locks they were all empty.
We did pass a couple of moored boat that raised a bit of interest, the first had a woven willow cratch frame, I don't know if the owner has a cover for it.*
