Coole Pilate – Audlum – Adderley

Another nice day to spend cruising, even though we had the Audlum flight of 15 locks ahead of us. We waved goodbye to Seventh Heaven as we set off. The flight was very busy from the start, which made it easier as all the locks were in our favour. It also meant we had a four boat queue at the water point, so we decided to moor and go to do some shopping first. Mooring for the night just below Adderley locks.

Finally moored at the services beside the Shroppie Fly

Lock 12, the by-washes are really strong, making it harder work going up
