Having just left 48 hour moorings that we have been on for about 60 hours, it was good to be on the move again. Haven't come far though. We were on a funny stretch of canal. At this point, the Macclesfield canal is about 15 feet above the Trent and Mersey, crossing it at about 90 degree angle. I have been coming along the Mackie in the morning, walking down about 15 steps to the 
T and M before walking along to the main road along the towpath. On the other side of the road is the Red Bull services on the T and M canal. Bryan took one of our cassettes along there on the Wednesday, only to find it was out of order. Have checked it every time I've gone past to see if it had been repaired, and this morning, at last, it was. So Bryan made another trip, successful this time, to empty a cassette. We set off for Scholar Green so that we can get to a church tomorrow. Travelpod doesn't recognise Scholar Green but it does know Mow Cop, which is close by.

We stopped at the water point to top up our tank, only to find that the hose connection had gone for a walk. After much searching for the spare, we finally found it in a plastic box on the roof and filled up with water. At the moment, Bryan is on the roof attempting to stop our mushrooms (air vents) from leaking. Thankfully, the rain has kept off as promised.
