Moss Bridge near Wigan

The Castlefield Moorings with the new "iconic" Great Northern Tower in the background.

We sailed as far as Bridgewater Boats to get a pumpout and some diesel and moored up opposite for the rest of the day. Lots of boats on the move. Most of them going past without slowing down!

Today we left quit late for us and stopped at Leigh for provisions. Just as we cast off David caught a glimpse of the bow of a boat coming up behind him. It was Wildflower and our friends Julia and Ed. They had made good time and caught us up earlier than expected.

We then travelled on through Plank Lane Lift Bridge and moored just before the locks at Wigan, ready for a quick getaway tomorrow morning.

One of my "doll" cards. She was originally fixed onto a hair band. The string was also taken from a hair slide.
