Autumn on the Cut

This is my favourite time of year and here we are on the Bridgewater Canal enjoying the season and this lovely location. Caxton is moored overlooking Dunham Massey and its deer park and we intend to be here until Tuesday.
Yesterday was the anniversary of Caxton's launch and our first year aboard Caxton and last night we marked the occasion by having a celebration meal at the village inn, The Swan with Two Nicks. Last February we were in Alrewas with Graham and Jill of Nb Matilda Rose celebrating their first year aboard and now here we are marking our year of this new life! And what a lovely life it is! Joe and I are very happy with this travelling existence and very comfortable aboard Caxton though the New Year will see one or two more modifications, more of which later....

Hi Lesley, when we moored just along from there, at Dunham village, we found a very nice tiny farm shop behind the Axe and Cleaver pub.

Hi Adam
Thanks for that. I suppose I will just HAVE to go looking for another Pub, Axe and Cleaver you said....

Hi Lesley
Gypsy Rover and Epiphany are currently at Castlefield and heading your way tomorrow or Monday.Our plan is to make Anderton by Tuesday evening. Will keep a look out for you. Might meet up for a quick hello at last.

The Axe and Cleaver was a bit restauranty for our liking. However, I'm sure you'll need to decide for yourselves...
