Market Drayton

We didn't travel far today, just down the Tyrley Locks to Market Drayton. We tied up at the aqueducts over the road and river; then walked down the steps and along the country lane into the town.

After yesterday's debacle over car identification I think I'll stick to safer ground; canals, boats and Volvos. There was a Volvo Amazon (B-reg) parked in Gnosall.

Here is Cheswardine Bridge in the steep-sided Woodseaves cutting.

And here is High Bridge, also in Woodseaves Cutting.

The lockie helpfully set all the locks for us as we descended the Tyrley flight.

We saw another posing kingfisher today. This time I had my camera ready, but the light in the cutting wasn't enough for my poor camera, and the photos are all blurred. Grr.

We ate in Oruna Indian restaurant this evening after a recommendation from Malcolm and Stephanie, who came aboard for a cup of tea this afternoon.

Audlem tomorrow. That's the plan, anyway.

There's a group of folk musicians who meet every Monday evening at the Bridge Inn in Audlem. It's a fun group with a whole range of styles and many different instruments. Well worth a visit.
