Anderton to Autherley Junction, via Exeter!

Through Norbury Junction and to Gnosall where Jill’s cousin Jan and husband Boomer joined us on their bikes for lunch.
While taking on water I couldn’t resist the rope grooves on the bridge irons, please take a look.
Then on to Autherly Junction and turning left onto the Staffs & Worcester Canal towards Stafford.
It was getting very hot so any shade, however acquired was welcome.
