We have had a very quiet and comfortable night moored here in the centre of Manchester at Castlefield Basin, a bit surprising really. Things are renovated and landscaped and the traffic is so far away that it is barely heard! We are off to explore the local environs later before tackling the Rochfield Nine this afternoon. As we are going to be spending November and December on the Peak Forest and Macclesfield canals we are not busting a gut to see the sights over the next couple of days. Both Joe and I came here quite regularly when we were working, particularly me, and a hop on a local train will get us into the City from our winter wanderings anyway. Rather impressed all the same...
