We have climbed up through those four locks at Hurleston. All the locks were full of fallen leaves making the lock look like it was full of ministroni soup. The leaves are being transported on what is effectively a slow running river all the way from the Dee 45 miles away. The 'Llangollen' heads southwest to Ellesmere in Shropshire so it is not yet a Welsh canal.
A quiet weekend now spent at Burland where this corner shop serves the locals.
