Church Lawton to Hassall Green

We planned to have an early start to miss the rain, but as we woke up to the sound of rain we didn’t bother rushing. Just as we pulled our pins everyone else must have had the same idea as there were two boats waiting at the lock and suddenly another four boats appeared behind. It was no hardship, this is a lovely flight and we didn’t have to queue as most of the locks are duplicated, having got through ten locks today we decided to moor opposite the Romping Donkey which we fondly remembered on our previous visits, sadly it now is up for sale and looking very unloved.
