Taking on 2 deliveries

Thursday 17th April

We left Norbury wharf yesterday morning about 11am after taking delivery of our new sofa bed!

We passed one of our favourite pubs on the canal, it has a caravan site on the premises & we have stayed on it in our motorhome.

The Anchor @ High Offley
This is quite a handful for mum!

Woodseave narrow cutting

We moored at Market Drayton & went for some shopping as our next delivery would be today as we were expecting Lee (Kev's Son)& friend Nigel! Once back aboard we left Market Drayton and worked through Adderly locks and finally moored up for the night after bridge72, but had no wifi signal there.
We were up early this morning as we wanted to get to Nantwich where we would meet up with Nigel & Lee, we left early @ 6.45am as we were up and about and we went through the flight of locks at Audlem.
Looking across to the Shroppie Fly pub from the lock.

We have passed quite a few boats today and when we arrived at Nantwich we went over the aqueduct only to find that there were no moorings and we were stopped on the bend wondering what to do. Kev left me on the boat to go see if there were any moorings further on. Meanwhile Nigel had already got parked up and was waiting for us and he caught up with Kev who was asking a couple if they were leaving and if so could we have their mooring. They said yes they would be leaving so he rang my phone and asked if I could start coming so I managed to get set off with quite a few boats coming in the opposite direction & it was very breezy but I finally got to Kev where the boat was going to pull across to the services so I could then just pull into their mooring. Nigel & Kev took over tying up so I left them to it. Lee will gate here tonight as he is working today so that will be our final delivery for today. 


  1. Hi Ann, your new sofa looks great and the blind too! I’m looking for window covering for the kitchen on Still Rockin’ and something like that may fit the bill. It looks unusual as doesn’t appear to have slats in it - can you tell me where you bought it from so that I can look further please?

  2. Hi Carol
    The blinds are all in one and look like venetions, they are from Cabincare if you give them a ring the man to ask for is Dave Miller, and he is lovely and has tons of samples too
