Lyme Green – Bosley Locks – Ramsdell Hall

The sun was shining as we set off for Bosley Locks, passing through two swing bridges to get there. We passed nine boats coming up the flight of twelve and only had to fill three locks by ourselves. The clouds were getting heavier and darker as we neared the bottom, then the rain came, luckily we were near a bridge and waited for the worst to pass. We moored at the bottom of Bosley for lunch, the sun came out again so we decided to carry on. Leaving us only a short cruise tomorrow to Heritage Boats for our engine service.
