Canal Drive: Appley Bridge, Crooke, Gathurst

The weather was so changeable today we managed to park by the canal three times in three places inbetween rain and hail showers. At Gathurst I had one shoe off ready to put my wellies on when the heavans opened, so we drove on to Crooke. We did manage to stand on a bridge at Crooke and found how to get there by car and where to park. I plan to return when the weather is better and look for signs of the tunnel. The hail soon sent us back to the car and it was off to Appley bridge. We made it as far as the locks and took some photos before the rain came down again and we headed back to the car and went to Cedar Farm to see the little goats and guinea pigs.
With the sunshining and the hail falling it was no day for towpath treking.
