Why Tracey
chose this stretch for Dianne and Derek Lloyd

We have had some great holidays on the canals with Mum and Dad, and this is a reminder of a moment we all enjoyed, and how the canals are a constant source of surprise and delight. After a really hard time coming through Rochdale due to lack of water, we climbed up towards the summit in gorgeous sunshine, with the scenery growing more glorious by the mile, and at Sladden Lock 44 (it's sign said Sladen!), we found a cricket match in progress just over the road. The cricket fans on the boat were thrilled!
