Dunham Massey to Ryan’s Bridge No.210 on the Trent & Mersey Canal, near Dutton.

Another sunny start to our day, which got underway at 8.30 am when we left Judith and John on NB Serena.

It was going to be a busy old day, in fect it was the busiest day we have had so far for traffic.

Lymm was lovely and sunny as we passed through.

We caught up with Linda and George on NB Wandering Star, they had spent the night at Lymm.

Preston Brook tunnel beckoned, we arrived there with 5 minutes to spare and followed Linda and George through.

We had to wait to go through Dutton Stop Lock, as there was a boat coming through and then it was Linda and Georges turn, by the time they went through another boat was approaching and was hoping to catch the tunnel time of to the hour. I helped him through and he just about caught the time to go in. In the meantime I could not open the gate properly as something was caught behind it, so Keith crept into the lock and then we got the pole out to try and dislodge whatever was jamming the gate. We manage to move the offending item and I got on with working the lock.

I love Dutton dry dock, it is so pretty. Probably dating from 1777 and owned by Tim Leech.

We were to follow Linda and George all the way to Bridge 212, where they moored up, we could not get in so carried on.

Time for a dip.

We are now moored near Ryan's Bridge No.210, not far from Acton swing bridge on the River Weaver. I feel a walk coming on over the weekend.
