I was surprised to see ice on the Shroppie in Market Drayton yesterday. Yes, it has been cold enough, but there's always such a large amount of water coming down the Tyrley Locks that I had thought that that would prevent ice forming.
However, these moorings are downstream of a large overspill weir. I guess the excess water disappears down there.
Jan and I wish you a very Happy New Year and look forward to being able to do more boating and meeting people than we did in 2020.
