Luckily we had got back to the boat last night before the rain started. It may have been raining when we went to bed but it cleared out over night and we woke to ice on the roof of the boat and mist rising from the canal as can be seen at the only lock of the day Crompton Lock.
We carried on meeting another two Narrowboats both of them looking very similar. Our mooring for the night was a sort way before Long Molls Bridge.
8½ miles, 1 lock in 3¼ hours
