Upper Peak Forest Canal

The stunning views continued as we travelled towards the end of the navigation at Whaley Bridge and Bugsworth Basin

One of the two easy to operate swing bridges

Past the Swizzles sweet factory near Whaley Bridge.  I wish I could bottle the smell as we went past to share it with you, or have something like smell-o-screen!
Another stunning aqueduct over the Goyt Valley

Hmm, that train's a bit too close for comfort!

The junction - Bugsworth Basin to the left, and Whaley Bridge to the right
looking back at the junction

Right turn into Whaley Bridge......

...   turn around ....

... and back out again.  We didn't fancy mooring here at all.  Bit too close to the A6!
We decided to see what Bugsworth Basin had to offer.
