Incursion. Day 2
We finally dragged ourselves away from our beautiful mooring because we were running out of water and the washing was stacking up, but the nearest water point was past Congleton. So we trundled on up the Macclesfield past these beautiful bridges designed so that the horses could stay attached to the boats when the towing path changed sides.
Through some strange mixtures of old & new bridges, filled up with water, winded & came back to the aquaduct where we found.......
........this rather nice watering hole where peoples and dogs spent several nice hours in the sunshine.
Then we found the Biddulph Valley Way - the route of the old railway.
This is the canal bottom sunk into the top of the train tunnel (under the aquaduct).
