We finished the southbound leg of the diversion and are now heading north on the Maclesfield Canal. Still a long way to go but at least the compass looks right at last.
Nicholson's Guide suggests climbing Mow Cop (1100ft) to look at Wales in the dark. I think I shall open the curtains later tonight and pretend it's Wales.
Journey today - 7 miles and 16 locks
Remaining diversion = 5 miles 51 locks
