on Monday we got ready to set off again went Tina saw a red light on the engine panel it was our domestic alternator light , so we phoned up Beta and they said it was still under warranty and would send a new one out to a boat yard we went past , so Tuesday we turned round and went back to the boat yard and fitted the new alternator and every thing was ok so we headed back to congleton ,i did some fishing and saw this carp
Wednesday we headed off and moored up at the bottom of Bosley locks we would do these Thursday there are 11 locks which take the canal up 118feet , we had just got to top lock when the heavens opened up and we both got soaked so we moored up and lit the fire and dried out , Friday we headed of for macclesfield , not knowing this canal we did not know that mooring in Macclesfield are not very good so we did not stop and just carried on to Bollington and moor next to a old silk mill ,
Saturday we stayed at Bollington and we went for a walk up to white Nancy which is a monument on top of hill it was erected by the Gaskell family in the 19th C to commemorate the battle of Waterloo and use as a summer house, the town of Bollington had painted on the queens jubilee on it not sue why !!
it was quite a view from the top
this week we are hoping to get down to Whaley Bridge on the Peak Forest canal and keep our fingers crossed for some sunshire as i am fitting an other solar panel
