Denford to Cheddleton Railway Station.

We had a fabulous time at Denford. Lunch was really nice as was the beer that washed it down. During the evening we went back to the pub to meet up with friends, Marina, Allyson and Rupert. It was wonderful to catch-up with them and to enjoy the evenings atmosphere in the pub. It is well worth a visit, if you can moor.

This morning after a late start we set off for Cheddleton Flint Mill. It was only a short hop.

Mooring was not a problem.

We walked down to Cheddleton Mill.

I love the cottages.

Apparently the earliest reference to milling at Cheddleton dates back to 1253.

They have two waterwheels.

Having looked around the Mill, we headed down the pair of locks and on to Cheddleton Railways Station.

We moored alongside the station and opposite The Boat Inn.

The station has quite a history and is beautiful.

We got to have a look around and enjoy the engines. This coming weekend they will be running the Steam Engines to Froghall.

Opposite the station is a field with pigs in and I could not resist taking this photograph.
