Oh SO wide..

Well the Bridgewater Canal (BC) is a real gem! Well maintained, wide and deep with no problems mooring. The towpaths are in excellent condition, an important thing for the 'walker' on the boat, and the vegetation is trimmed/mown. Our first night on the BC we moored at Lower Walton and wandered into Stockton Heath for provisions. Day two we moved up five miles to Lymm.Above, the road to Lymm from the Town Bridge and below the ancient town cross.We had lunch here before moving on to the service point a mile further on. The Nicholsons symbol that indicated full services available is incorrect, there is no rubbish disposal and no water. Water is to be had just before Little Bollington however but patience is a must as the flow is VERY slow.

Plenty of boat room here.
Moored near the River Bollin Aqueduct between Little Bollington and Dunham.
