|C&RT in lock, Canal Time trying to pull back onto the landing and note the Ginger Hire boat (R) on the private moorings.|

For once the T&M allowed us to make good headway. Normally the section between Wychner lock and Barton Turns is quite shallow and with our 2' 4" draft, if were not careful we create a wash. Whether this section has been dredged or maybe there is more water in the canal I don't know, but we managed a good 3mph for most of that route.

Stopped at Stenson and took the last available mooring. Didn't really want to go down the first of the doubles today and with us meeting up with friends tomorrow afternoon in Shardlow (9 miles and 5 locks) could see no reason to continue any further today.
|Looks like C&RT have been busy over the summer. New moorings at Willington perhaps?|
