WARDLE LOCK COTTAGE by REBECCA PAGE
by David Roberts,
Our Masthead photo for January 2021 is by Rebecca Page and features that old favourite, Wardle Lock Cottage, where the Wardle Canal links the Middlewich Branch of the Shropshire Union Canal to the Trent & Mersey at the nearby junction. Once the home of 'Auntie' Maureen Shaw, who spent her life working on the canals before coming 'ashore' at Wardle Lock.
