We eventually moored up below Roaches Lock walked back to the previous lock to the Tollemache Arms where we had a rather nice pint and a chat with some of the other customers. Then walked back to the pub at Roaches Lock where we had dinner. A very good evening!!
Set off at about 9:00 this morning, at the first lock a man threw a stick for his dog which jumped across the lock, a 7 foot leap. He said the dog likes to show off, think he might be the show off though. Stopped at Tesco in Staleybridge for shopping. Then decided to carry on and moor up in the Peak Forest Canal. Apparently this is the best place hereabouts to moor as the Ashton Canal runs through a dodgy area. Tomorrow we will go back onto the Ashton Canal and complete the journey of approx 6 miles and 18 locks into Manchester where we may stay for a couple of days. Looking forward to seeing Manchester as not been here before.
