Leigh Bridge, Leigh Branch, Leeds and Liverpool Canal
We sailed up to Plank Lane and winded by the new marina (so far only water and a metal fence and acres of ploughed up land) and went back into Leigh so that I could catch a bus into Manchester to try and get our mail. Not successful I'm afraid - the Post Office didn't seem to have worked over the whole Easter weekend. Still we had a good shop in Aldi (right by the mooring) and nearly bought a new leather recliner and some garden chairs, but decided we didn't have room. If they are still there when we go past on the way back we will buy them then.
We are taking a chance and spending the night here by the pub as David needs to watch the football on Sky this evening.
I got some "men" backing papers a few weeks back and have used up quite a bit already.
This white card blank was half covered with chequered paper and a shiny peel-off stuck along the top join. Two labels were threaded with red ribbon and then stuck across the join and a sentiment stuck down above it.
The "topper" car was then stuck over the bottom join of the paper.
