Today we departed New Mills Marina, after we topping up with diesel and pumping out the waste tank. We enjoyed our short stay there as it is only a small Marina, and the people we met were friendly. The views from the berths across the valley towards Kinder Scout were fantastic.
New Mills Marina.
At Marple Junction we made the turn back onto the Macclesfield Canal, and now just like the sun, we have commenced our journey south for the winter. Our intended mooring spot at Higher Poynton was unavailable, the last of the Braidbar boat stragglers, still there following their open day at the weekend. So we continued on to our secondary choice, opposite Lyme View Marina. This time we have stopped on the 24 hr moorings, which do not have an underwater shelf, unlike where we stopped previously here on the other side of the bridge.
