The plan was to stop at a suitable mooring and do some shopping in Stone and then continue to Barlaston for the night. There was a convenient space for us so I proceeded to do just that. By the time that was done and coffee made it was 11.30 or so and a few more boats were on the move. We went through the first lock but by now there were two ahead of us and one of those was a single-hander in a small plastic boat... so when a reasonable looking space appeared just above the lock we decided to quit for the day..........no point in making life difficult for ourselves.!!
|coming up the lock we see a nice spot just beyond the green boat on the left,|
|This notice is outside the pub alongside the lock........ie do not fall in unless the pub is open!|
Average speed:0.62 mph (1.26 lock/mph)
