The canal here is quiet open with farmland spanning both sides.
We pass Sandbach a market town which again is a salt town, which houses to Saxon crosses in the market place.
We carry on through more locks and Denise was told that about a week ago the flight was closed as someone had hanged there self in the lock, which is a bit sad.
Under the M6 again and more locks, people calls this stretch " heartbreak hill" bot the old canal boatman know them as Cheshire locks.
We moor up the night at Rode Heath knowing that more locks need to be tackled tomorrow, and sample a shandy in " the Broughton Arms" a nice pub with a nice menu, and back to the boat for dinner .
