We enjoyed the modern service at St. Mary's, Market Drayton, this morning; then we bought a few provisions at Lidl and set off at about 1320. The old wharf building has a For Sale sign but I don't know if it's the whole building or just a part.
Between the locks and Shebdon Embankment there was a fishing match on. Almost without exception the fishermen (all men) were happy to exchange pleasantries and some were even chatty.
Grà on test - The September *Canal Boat* is out, and includes my boat test on *Grà* by Finesse Boats. It will be their Crick Boat Show exhibit.
