Coming down the Lawton Treble Locks on Wednesday there was a new gate loaded into a boat ready to be installed somewhere.
In the background I could see two steel balance beams with what looks like hydraulic lock gear on them.
And next to this, a large rack of stop planks.
We stayed in Nantwich today, having a "day off". I topped up the fuel tank from our spare 20 litre jerry can. This means that we can get back to Market Drayton without the possibility of running out of diesel; also, this ensures that we don't have old diesel lying around. The can will be refilled at the same time as the tank.
