So Cheshire

Here is Little Moreton Hall (NT) built between 1559 and 1580 when Good Queen Bess was ruling this land. We are moored at Bridge 86 on the Macclesfield canal just south of Congleton.

A short walk across the fields (3/4 of a mile) from our mooring brings us to this beautiful building. I think I need to re-join the National Trust as we are in a perfect position to take full advantage of the membership as we are moving around all the time. The Hall was closed today so we only glimsped the exterior but we did 'meet' one of the tenants below.....
This chap was patrolling the moat!
