Well not the best of days, a tad damp. Then when we stop the sky clears and the sun comes out gorgeous!
Yesterday was simply wonderful and guests enjoyed a glass of wine and sit on top as we cruised into Crook.
A lovely spot now but would have been a pit village with something like 11 pits in the local area and lots of barges taking coal away. Even a tunnel underground for the canal.
Tony Robinson did a really good Walking Through History episode really good episode on the stretch Liverpool to Wigan well worth a watch on More4.
