We then go round the lake of Blakemere and you seem to get a lot closer with the canal on one side and the lake on the other. Then it was the short but tricky Ellesmere tunnel where you seem to stop with the force of the water on the way through. We soon got to the junction with the arm going into Ellesmere town centre. We were surprised that there was a big new Tesco's at the end, well it had been there for a year. There has been a lot of development going on around the basin and at the moment this is a 72 hour mooring. We were lucky enough to get a spot...We then had a walk around town and Del brought some wellies for a fiver. We hope that Tesco's wont force a lot of the shops to close, which would be a shame, but you never know, more bars and restaurants may develop. We got back to Derwent6, set up the telly and watched the Football in the evening......wish we hadn't bothered though!
