Nine week cruise - day 34 - 4th August 2005
Moore to Anderton
John up late at 0805! Got under way after breakfast at 0900. At Preston Brook we turned right towards Runcorn. Watered up by Preston Brook Marina while Alison had a shower. Under way again at 1045.
Tied up at the very end of the canal in Runcorn and had a look round the town. Had a very run down air - lots of cheap shops. Bought a plug for the TV (the old one had disintegrated) and cycled over the bridge (a bit scary) to Widnes to get two oil filters and 5 litres of oil.
Got going again at 1430, mooring up at 1920 by the Anderton Lift.
Canal pub landlord foils Russian spy ring - With all the hoo hah going on about Russian spies, it was purely by coincidence that yesterday I came across this story whilst idly skimming through stuff ...
