Adderley – Market Drayton - Goldstone Wharf

Set off for Adderley locks, a flight of 5. Stopping off at the top lock no 1 to visit Adderley Wharf farm shop, we were so impressed on our first visit that we could not go by without calling in again to re stock with excellent produce, sausages, bacon, chicken and pork steaks and as always a warm welcome by Simon and Alison. After a long natter we carried on through Betton Wood to Market Drayton, where we stopped for lunch and had a walk into the town as it was market day. Then on through to Tyrley locks, another flight of 5 located in a sandstone cutting, mooring for the night at Goldstone Wharf.
