Chester to Egg Bridge to Beeston Castle

More and more working boats were arriving in Chester, so we felt obliged to leave as space was getting tighter. We dropped Denise off by Old Harkers so she could get her train home and we carried on, mooring just outside Egg Bridge. As the weather was still hot we got out the bbq for another enjoyable evening. The following day we made our way slowly past many private moored boats and moored just above Wharton’s lock by Beeston Castle. We must have felt quite energetic as we decided to walk up to the castle, we have been before so we knew what we were letting ourselves in for, but the views are certainly well worth it.

Hazy sunshine, if you look just beyond the train behind the bushes you can just make out the boats
