From Wheelock to Acton Bridge

After a good nights sleep and breakfast I went on. The day turned out to be the last day on the Trent & Mersey Canal. I came along a Middlewich and Northwich with their industrial areas - yes, this is a big part of the canal too.
Unfortunately I was too late for the Anderton Boat Lift, one of only two working boat lifts in the United Kingdom.
There were two small further tunnels, I had hard fights with too small gates, before I found a beautiful place for my tent nearby the Bradley Meadow Bridge. Here I met Tim who checked out the trains to Liverpool for me, thanks for that :)

These kind of gates means I have to take off all luggage, take it through the gate and lift the bicycle over the gate.
