Acton Trussell

Yesterday the crew returned from their weekend jaunt, so this morning we were up bright and breezy ready to move off. First we settled our bill with the Stafford Boat Club and I am sure we will visit them again on our travels. The crew went top up shopping to a large co-op store in Wildwood, whilst I filled the water tank and prepared the boat. The forecast today was for heavy showers and occasional sunny spells. We set off with a potential mooring spot 200 yards ahead through the bridge. This was only going to be used if the weather was really foul, it was not. We continued on to the lock about half a mile away and were fortunate that a boat had set it for us. Through the lock for a further half a mile and we reached our intended mooring spot. Just as we were tying up the heavens opened with a mix of rain and hail. Five minutes later, just as we finished the sun came out. We have enough supplies to last at least a week, so we will probably stay here till after the bank holiday weekend as it may get busy.



As you can see from the above pictures of our mooring spot we are once again in a picturesque rural setting, just prior to the village of Acton Trussell. The M6 motorway is about a mile and half away but is shielded by trees and not bothering us at all.
