|Another decent Perch.|
|Sun going down and then......|
|the sky took on the red of a lovely sunset|
Most of the climb was done on lanes but, on getting closer, I happened to spy a sign with National Trust on it pointing toward the top. So feeling adventurous we took that path.
|Still a long way to go.|
|Views from part way up looking at the North Rode viaduct.|
|Jodrell Bank observatory.|
|Along the National Trust path.|
|Views get more spectacular.|
Then the path seemed to stop. To our left side was a rocky outcrop and Ian decided to have a climb to see if that was the way to go. It certainly was and I then had to try and climb over huge boulders set at impossible angles to get to the top. I very nearly gave up but the thought of trekking down the same route made me more determined to proceed. Thank goodness Ian's steadying hand was on hand!

|Zoomed in photo of Bosley Locks|
|And showing the locks leading off to the R|
|And our boat. (again zoomed in).|
|Doesn't she look pleased with herself.|
We eventually found the short cut and, on looking back, saw the huge boulder which so nearly scuppered my chance of reaching the top. Again I have cropped the photo.
|Doesn't show the path at all. The ferns in the center of the picture is what we had to walk through.|
|Ian spied this tiny baby bunnie in the hedgerow. It stayed still enough for me to take this photo|
|On the final leg back. FS can be seen on the horizon.|
We leave tomorrow for Maccelsfield and hope to find a mooring. Loads of boats have passed us today so I'm keeping fingers crossed a space will be available.
