Wigan Top Lock.

Nicholson's Guide said we would find the Crawford Arms at bridge 63,open all day serving inexpensive food. So last night we moored at Bridge 63 with the intention of having a meal at the Crawford Arms.When we checked it out we found it had been renamed Bridge 63 and was more of a wine bar than a country pub. It was too modern for us,it felt cold and lacked character, so we gave it a miss.
This morning we set off heading for the Wigan Flight of twenty one locks. on the way we stopped at bridge 60 and walked through the woods to Haigh Hall, we had coffee in the old stable block then walked back to the boat by a different route. The weather was once again windy with sun and showers. Continuing our journey we arrived at Wigan top Lock,where after pumping out and topping up with water ,we moored for the night. Tomorrow will be a busy day. Tonight though we will have our meal out at the Kirkless Hall Inn,at the side of the second lock down.
