Marbury's Mere: Silent sorrow in empty boats?


A new favourite walk of ours (about 6 miles long and therefore takes about 2 hours) is from Barnton along the Trent and Mersey Canal, past the amazing Anderton boat-lift that lifts craft from the River Weaver to the canal and vice versa.

You can then reach Marbury Country Park in Comberbach, finishing here at Budworth Mere, where the ducks sunbathe on the empty boats.

Silent sorrow in empty boats is a track which bookends a lovely ambient music mix. In my view it's a perfect accompaniment for sitting up as late as possible and savouring the long daylight at this time of year. http://lowlightmixes.blogspot.co.uk/2010/09/silent-sorrow-in-empty-boats.html

  6. I love the green boats in this photo. You can't improve on blue skies and the green of nature, all reflected in water. I'd like to make that walk.
