After a week kicking my heels in Middlewich whilst she who must be obeyed was with the grandchildren and having run two loads of washing through the machine I felt it prudent to top up the water tank today. Not being an accomplished single-hander, I sought assistance with the locks from Terry on Dragon Lady who is at Kings Lock waiting for a new engine. As I sought a new mooring on the Middlewich Arm I was accosted by a gentleman in his back garden.
Almost opposite the afore-mentioned pub is the Kings Lock Chippie which is in a different league. The fish is freshly cooked and tasty; service is quick and efficient and the staff smile - three characteristics not found across the road.
