Anderton to Autherley Junction, via Exeter!

Retracing steps again along the Middlewhich Branch and the Shropshire Union, stopping off again at Overwater Marina to go home to Exeter for a week, and catch up with the grandchildren.
We were able to spend a bit more time around Audlem, visiting the town and gathering strength before setting off again.
Audlem Locks again, time for a few pictures.
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.
