An eight lock day.

Today has seen us leave Stone and move to a mooring near the Wedgwood Pottery at Barlaston. There were four locks leaving Stone. The weather was warm but showery. At the third lock we met up with some people from Fox Narrowboats our old boat yard in March Cambridgeshire.
We had four more locks before stopping for lunch at Barlaston village. A small village but with a good selection of shops. It was a short trip after lunch to our over night mooring. Once moored we walked to the Wedgwood visitors centre which was just a short walk from the canal. As it was late afternoon we only had time to look round the shop. There was some lovely pottery but very expensive.
On the way back to the boat it started to rain, by the time we got back it was a full blown thunder storm. Looks like a night in with the tele. No pub to-night.
Sorry no pictures to-night a slow Internet connection.
