At Marple Junction we made the turn back onto the Macclesfield Canal, and now just like the sun, we have commenced our journey south for the winter. Our intended mooring spot at Higher Poynton was unavailable, the last of the Braidbar boat stragglers, still there following their open day at the weekend. So we continued on to our secondary choice, opposite Lyme View Marina. This time we have stopped on the 24 hr moorings, which do not have an underwater shelf, unlike where we stopped previously here on the other side of the bridge.
