BSS test.

Turning towards Middlewich we dropped down Minsull Lock and moored just below it, as we had arranged to have our first Boat Safety Scheme test done by Adrian Pye. He covers the Northwest, Midlands and Wales areas. We had picked up one his advertising cards en-route and arranged to meet him here. He and Sue run The Borders Cheese Carrying Company selling cheeses+chutney from their lovely narrow-boat SQ 11. He duly appeared, gave Oakfield a thorough inspection and told us we had passed, phew! As he was having a delivery of cheese in Aqueduct Marina we popped around later to pay him and pick up our report. Then we called in to the marina cafe and had a lovely lunch, so no cooking for me on this very hot day, perfick.
