We stopped for lunch before tackling the Adderley flight. On the way up we met Mike Edwards on a boat called Sarah Kate known to our friends Terry n Myra. Other friends known to us are John n Sue who live in Market Drayton and we went to see them when we got there.
Next day we got water opposite the Betton Mill. That building and wharf is now empty and unused. Several boating companies have come and gone but it seems British Waterways wants too much for the lease and annual rent. So much for British Waterways making money from property.
It was a calm sunny day as we proceeded up the Tyrley locks on our own, most empty and in our favour. Such a contrast from the previous day.
