Whilst we were moored the rain eased and we decided to resume our journey.
As we approached Woodseaves Cutting the rain came down in earnest. There is not always sufficient room to pass an oncomming boat but there were not too many other fools driving in the rain.
The passage through Woodseaves was not improved by a landslip which restricted the channel even more.
Once we were clear of the cutting the rain eased up again and we were encouraged to continue. By the time we arrived at the top of Tyrely Locks the rain had decided it could not beat us and we had a dry run down into Market Drayton.
