Church to Rose Grove

Spent another night at Church as the weather was awful, especially the gusting winds. The forecast today was rain in the afternoon, so we had an early start and luckily we did not get wet, although the temperatures have dropped considerably. The L&L is a contour canal and after cruising for an hour we had just about gone around in a complete circle, being a stone’s throw away from where we were moored near Church. We were heading for what Pearson’s described as a secure mooring at Rose Grove, to enable us to go into Burnley to replace our mobile broadband. The moorings are not quite what we pictured, but will have to do for the night.



Church Wharf. Flyboats once unloaded cotton at this three storey canal warehouse.


Does this chimney look straight?


Just one of the three swing bridges we went through today

Fantastic views as we head towards Burnley
