Man Overboard! Dog Rescue on the Freezing Shropshire Union Canal!

January 10, 2020

Our emergency procedure kicks in as we lose a man overboard! Dillon jumps off the boat, so a dog rescue on the freezing Shropshire Union Canal is needed. We leave our mooring just south of Market Drayton and tackle the Tyrley Locks, which come with a fierce warning from other boaters. We check out the history of Tyrley and links with the chocolate maker, Cadbury. We pass through the longest canal cutting on the network, Woodseaves Cutting, with its high bridges before emerging at Knighton Foods factory, where Colin rediscovers the chocolate-making history. After passing Shebdon Embankment and wharf we moor up for the night. The next morning we make our way through Grub Street Cutting and check out the haunted bridge 39 with its random telegraph pole before completing our journey at Norbury Junction.
