Kidsgrove to Moreton (Bridge 81)

Sunny day meant we decided to turn aside and go up the Macclesfield Canal. Tried to tie up near Bridge 85 for a walk up to Mow Cop, but shallow water made mooring hard, and eventually tied up just beyond Bridge 81.

Realised too late we were running out of solid fuel. Will need to go back to Heritage Narrowboats tomorrow for a few bags.

4.4 miles, 2 locks, 3.1 engine hours
