Not a soul was stirring as we crept away from our mooring but as we reached the first lock a hire boat had just winded ahead of us, but not too drastic as the locks were twinned. We met several more in both directions as we travelled to the top at Bulls Bridge, unusual for some many to be about this early.
|Ahead on the right is our sharp turn onto the Macclesfield.|
|Shortly after turning we go over the aqueduct that takes us over the locks we had climbed earlier|
|Approaching Halls Green Lock which is all of a 1ft climb.|

|Some people make wonderful gardens on the canal banks and they cannot even see them from their houses|
|We get all the benefit|
