Buglawton to Kidsgrove

Winded before the Bosley locks. Found we had more dog mess on my shoes – probably picked up in the act of setting off. So we stopped at the "Secret Water" to clean it all up, and to re-fill the tank since we'd done a wash. Cloudy, cool and slightly damp day. Pump-out at Heritage Narrowboats (£17). Tried unsuccessfully to call on Roy and Audrey (NB Rosie). Tied up at the aqueduct moorings shortly before re-joining the T&M.

Taybrite fire took a long time to get going tonight – had to intervene before it properly caught.
