A couple of 'shout outs' before leaving the Macclesfield

I'm back tracking again, we're obviously moving too quickly, and I can't keep up with the blog!  I haven't yet put up the pics of Brian & Anne Marie from NB Alton, who we had a lovely night with in the Navigation pub in Bugsworth Basin, over a week ago now.  The following morning, we took delivery of some coal and logs - boy was it cold! 

'Gis a wave!
Alton delivering to the NB Cutter just behind us when we were on the water point.  Funny story:
We were sitting in the pub the night before, when a couple walked in, got a drink & sat down.  All of us said "blimey, he looks just like Roger Fuller" (the boat builder).  Ha - turns out it was his brother!

Thanks guys.

NB Alton a couple of days later, loading up for another run.  Brian here loading bags of coal.

Someone else I need to mention before we leave the Macclesfield is the narrowboat
WANDERING DUCK, which is a new venture based at Bugsworth Basin, offering short stays or overnight accommodation aboard their narrowboat.  Have a look at the website.  
Last one now - THE MACCLESFIELD CANAL SOCIETY, who produce a very good on line guide, listing everything you need to know about cruising the canal.  They also produce a paper guide, containing a very useful map, and you can pick one of these up from little boxes located at Hall Green, Boseley and Marple.
