Hadar has come to visit the Caldon Canal.

Last nights sunset over Westport Lake was very impressive.

This morning we had a lovely start to the day. Paddy and I walked down to the lake and watched the ducks before heading back to the boat.

We set off at 8.20 am and were heading for the Caldon Canal.

We stopped first at Middleport Pottery to have a look around their shop. They do a beautiful dark blue pattern, which I am sure Wetherspoons uses and I love it.

We have never seen the front of the building, it is beautiful, but what is sad is the empty and boarded up houses opposite. So many needing homes and these are sitting empty.

We made our way to Etruria and up the Bedford staircase locks.

This is Hadar’s first visit to the Caldon Canal, We last did the Caldon Canal on our old boat Misty Lady in 2005. So it is new water for our lady.

We were actually interested to see the changes and they were all to clear when we reached Planet Lock, because there is a new Medical Centre right beside the lock, this was not there in 2005.

There has been a lot of building going on with lots of new houses and apartments going up.

Art work beside the locks.

We arrived in the rain at Stanley Moss and past the obstruction in the centre of the canal, it is like a mini roundabout. We moored up by Stoke Boat Club.

The heavens opened and so we were glad to have stopped.
