It was a slow start today because I had to join a conference call and internet training session associated with my job as a scientific editor. Amazingly internet speeds on mobile internet at Ramsdell were really fast and compared favourably with those at home where we are not yet on Superfast Broadband.
Ramsdell Hall Railings
(viewed from Albert's  engine room)
The moorings near Ramsdell Hall are bordered by some stylish cast iron railings. They were restored some years ago by a variety of organisations including British Waterways. I couldn't resist photographing them before we left. The weather was fine all day although it was more cloudy and at one time it looked like we might get rain.

A typical Macclesfield Canal Bridge
Narrow, but stylish, with a generous towpath
We stopped at Congleton wharf so we could go into the town for supplies. The town looked at its best in the sunshine and we managed a delicious lunch at an Italian Deli in the town centre. Strangely there isn't a water point at the wharf and we had to move onto Bridge 68 before we could take on water.

Bosley locks in summer evening sunshine
Tonight we are moored up just below Bosley Locks. It is a great spot with great views of The Cloud and the Dane Valley.
