One of the lovely old sandstone milestones along the towpath told us how many miles we had come from Marple in sixteen days. We left our quiet countryside mooring and cruised on past Congleton Station under many bridges on a straight bit.
Through a dark cutting past the busy Feed Mill, over Dog Lane Aqueduct to moor at Congleton Wharf. The old wharf warehouse opposite has been tastefully converted for residential use and surrounded by similarly styled new housing. Armco made tying up here easy on the 48 hour designated moorings..
