Water & lock problems

After that day of rest we moved down Wardle lock to get water.
The tap did not have the normal screw on connection so we were lent an adaptor to push on. Several boats came down for water and returned back up the lock that morning. When we got up the pound was very shallow, muddy and covered in fallen leaves.

We got as far as the visitor moorings at Aqueduct Marina. Minshull lock is still waiting for a new top gate and is only open between 8 and 4 if the lock keeper turns up. We were told that replacing the gate should take about a week or so some time before the end of the month!
