Journey North 33: Etruria – Bosley

16 miles, 13 locks

We set off in convoy from Etruria with some of the Bollington fleet: Jason on Bargus and Brian on Alton.

Then it was through Harecastle tunnel and onto the Macclesfield Canal at Red Bull junction.

Crossing the Trent and Mersey canal (Bargus went underneath)

I cycled off to give Jason a hand through the first few locks then back to Willow. On the Macclesfield Canal proper now we loved the views from our beautiful new home waterway.

Passing Brian on Alton as he was servicing a boat

Then we got to the flight at Bosley and were glad of a hand from Ann-Marie and Jason! It’s a spectacular flight with views of Bosley Cloud.

We tied up at the top at about 9:45pm and went for a drink with the Bollington lot.
