Bugsworth Basin

Spent an excellent couple of days at Disley on the Peak Forest Canal. We caught the train to Preston for Heather's birthday on Saturday.
This morning there was an amazing sun rise. We headed back to Busgworth Basin, a disused lime transfer depot, where we can have 48 hours mooring. Went shopping to the supermarket, by the same name of the one opened by Mr Cohen at Burnt Oak in 1929 and got back just before the heavens opened. Such a luxury we have a gravel, puddle & mud free moorings in one of the loading basins. Our first proper chance to get rid of the mud splattered on the boat from all the tow path users. It's hard to believe how peaceful it is here now compared to it's hay day with the lime kilns shipping out of here.

Just Skyped with the girls at 'Yarnies' knitting group a Venue 360 and now off to the pub (Navigation Inn) with my knitting, in the beautiful moon light.
