Ian managed to get the engine serviced yesterday afternoon and we had a late start this morning as we waited for our time slot of 11.30 for the return trip on the boat lift. It was still as exciting as we were given our instructions for our upward journey, making our way back onto the Trent and Mersey. We went through two kinky tunnels, Barnton and Saltersford. Mooring just after Bartington Wharf, with the River Weaver now the scenery below.
