Norbury Junction to Market Drayton

What a difference a day makes, yesterday we were dressed in t-shirts and having to put on sun cream. Today there was a fair chill in the air resulting in coats, hats and gloves, trying to keep warm. We have cruised through some of the infamous cuttings on the Shropshire Union canal and the picturesque flight of Tyrley locks. Mooring for the night at Market Drayton to enable us to drop Dave off to get back to his car.

The former Cadbury factory at Knighton. There was still a strong smell of chocolate in the air from the new factory in the background

I blame Ian for getting his shorts out! You had a great start though, I am sure it will be back to sunshine now the weekend is over and we are back at work!

Some great photo's!
