Now turned around and heading back along the Bridgewater Canal onto the Trent & Mersey to
go up the Macclesfield and Lower Peak Forest canals.
This fine canal building some 200 yrs old survives converted to flats stands just to the north of Preston Brook Tunnel.

Got to use your imagination here but believe me as i came under this bridge a Fox trotted across and halfway stopped and watched me pass by, as i grabbed the camera and looked back he had gone. He actually stood his ground as i passed under him just a few feet away. Cunning old Fox knew i couldn`t get to him.

Another nice mooring above the R. Weaver at Acton Bridge.

Many narrow boats trade on the canals and these 2 were moored in Middlewich, the first one sells cheeses and the other home made Fudge.

Aaah Bisto. This brick sculpture was on display in the Bisto factory reception area canal side at Middlewich. Sadly the factory is now being demolished with nearly a thousand jobs lost.

Nb Valerie sits in lock 66 at Wheelock. All the locks along this section are paired but some are in a bad state and not in use although BW are getting some back in use.

A lovely end to another day with the still water acting as a mirror as the sun goes to bed.

Still following Mike Perham on his solo round the world trip. Out in the Pacific Ocean on day 100.
