Going down the locks

We have got back to Marple and turned on the Peak Forest canal. Found some deep moorings on a bend for the long weekend.

The diesel boat Alton came by and filled our diesel tank again. Having got rid of our unwanted and filled the water tank at the junction we were all set for our decent of the Marple locks.

We went first followed by Seyella. It was a lovely sunny day as we went down 214 feet in a mile through 16 locks.
We were lucky to have several volunteers helping our two boats down with several coming up as well. 
Seyella arriving at the bottom.

At the bottom we found a quiet spot opposite a field of sheep n lambs just past the aqueduct.
