This week we are moored just a few yards short of a place we moored at over a week ago,Astley,where the Mining Museum is.We've come back here to avoid the loud music from the pub opposite the moorings at Leigh and tomorrow we will head back again,Lisa's waiting for some new glasses to arrive and a delivery at one of the shops so we don't want to be too far away.
|Tuesday evening moored by Scotsman's Flash,we went for a circular walk along the Towpath and then back along the footpath on the opposite side of the canal.|
|Part of some old mine workings maybe? a loading staith perhaps? there's little way of knowing now.|
|There are still a number of Mills around Leigh and this is Leigh Mill.|
|As you get closer to Leigh there's another lovely old mill,even though it is a bit tatty.This one is Mather Lane Mill,built in 1882 and is being converted to apartments as I type this.|
|A common sight on all our waterways,the Heron,they don't seem to be as nervous anymore and often stand on the bank as we cruise by but they never take their eyes off us.|
