However we completed what we set out to do during a planned five day layover in Portland Basin Marina Dry-Dock last week. We left on Friday to spend Easter weekend in Droylesden Marina.
With everything shipshape once again we're making an early start at dawn tomorrow (bank holiday Monday), to work down the eighteen locks of the Aston flight into Manchester's Ducie Street Junction, and then on down the Rochdale nine through Manchester. So a long day ahead of us. We hope to make Worsley on the Leigh Branch of the Bridgewater Canal by late Monday afternoon.
