Ramsdell Hall

What a change in the weather from the last few days! Stayed moored up in Congleton this morning.

Since mobile internet was back on I did some scientific editing and watched the rain. After running the engine to charge up the batteries we took a break by walking to the Spar convenience store just up Canal Street. We followed this by lunch and then headed towards Hall Green stopping at our favourite visitor moorings along this stretch of the canal, the moorings near Ramsdell Hall.

The views over the fields towards Little Moreton Hall were not as good as our last visit since it was misty. We had a series of heavy rain showers and lit the fire. Cows in the field opposite who had recently given birth brought down their offspring to paddle in the canal.

As the light faded, with the misty wet atmosphere we were treated to a glorious setting red sun.

Tomorrow we head for Stoke via Harecastle Tunnel.
