Four Counties Ring Day 10, Middlewich to Nantwich

Approaching Barbridge Junction, where the Middlewich Branch meets the actual Shropshire Union Canal

This is the spot where seconds earlier the superb (entertaining and thought-provoking) narrowboating writer Steve Haywood had cruised past on his NB Justice. The timing was amazing, bearing in mind that we had just started reading his books! (Thanks again to Debbie & Andrew Shephard for introducing us to his writings and indeed the loan of two of his books). Unfortunately, by the time I realised it was him he was too far away to try and have a chat. Oh well, perhaps next time.
