We went to The Cotton Arms to eat last night and I must say we were not disappointed and I will definitely go there again when we are passing. They had three beers on the pumps plus the fizzy stuff. I had a very nice Chicken and leek pie with veg. where as Diana had Gammon, eggs, pineapple, peas and chips and it was all first class.
Last night was very clear and even colder but the temperature was well into double figures by 10 o'clock with bright sun and clear blue sky.
As expected all the locks were against us and we didn't see another boat on the move until we reached Hurleston, and that was just leaving the bottom of the flight, but at least it was full of water today.
Someone has erected a box on the towpath by Baddiley Lock 3, I suspect its CRT but I did wonder how they fixed it down without opening the door, as its still wrapped up.
