Stuck at Tixall Wide

Tuesday, 27th March
Today's plan had been to get through Great Haywood and on to the Trent & Mersey, which we managed - just - although it took a lot longer than we thought because we stopped for morning coffee at Tixall Wide. A stop which turned into a lunch stop and then an afternoon tea stop, as anyone who has ever been there on a warm sunny day will understand.

We eventually dragged ourselves away in later afternoon as other boats started to arrive and it threatened to get crowded and carried on to Great Haywood, where we turned left onto the Trent & Mersey, stopping for the night just past the winding hole at Shirleywich.
