On the way to Bollington

With Mags arriving we set off early, before 9 and headed up the Macclesfield. It is full of wonderful sights, the problem is the camera never does them justice.
This is one of the better ones looking over the valley




The other thing that follows you near the 12 Bosley locks in something called the "Cloud" a fell over 1000ft high, watches you all the way up the flight.



There is something unusual about the locks at Bosley, they are the only set of locks, except for the stop lock, it was the fashion of Thomas Telford to group them all together. They also featured mitred top gates instead of the usual one gate like on many other canals.


Will finally made it to our destination of Bollington and tied up just by the magnificent Clarence Mill. It is one of the many old silk mills that are a common sight.


On a slightly different tangent. I have seen the golden beaches of Bali, been up the Victoria peak in Hong Kong, but I have never seen Mags get up so early and that was even before I got up and made her coffee.... one for the record books I think
