Day Two and Three

Well the connectivity has been useless so no pictures or maps until we get some 3G. We stopped for lunch at the Kings Lock (mmm roast lamb) and ended up in Wheelock for the night great food at the Old Mill restaurant, it says Mediterranean but it is almost all Italian.

Day 3 has been locks after locks 23 of them, this part of the Trent and Mersey Canal is called Heartbreak Hill. We tried the Romping Donkey at Hassall Green but apparently the chef quit last week so was only doing sandwiches 🙁 still the beer “Abbot Ale” hit the spot. We decided to go to the lock 57 brasserie for lunch, not bad if a bit on the expensive side. We are now moored just north of Kidsgrove next to the Red Bull Inn, the menu seems a bit on the fancy side for a pub (roast duck with cherries)

Tomorrow morning brings us to Harecastle Tunnel…
