Yesterday we had visitors on NB Bendigedig when Paula, Danielle, Robin and Jo came to see us. Today we had more visitors when Howard, Lorraine, Yvonne and Karl came to see our boat. The boat was very dirty outside and very hairy inside with Ben the dog. We enjoyed a lovely chat before making our move to the end of the Ashby Canal after Snarestone Tunnel. Here we used the services and turned around and headed back to a nice spot we'd noticed before the tunnel.
The canal is slowly being extended towards Measham and the Ashby Canal Society was selling his wares to raise funds. I gave them some books to sell and put a donation in a decorated water can. It made me think of last time we came here when we walked to Measham trying to follow the filled in canal and walked miles. The one good thing I can remember is the fish and chip shop was open!
We passed the motte and bailey at Shackerstone next to the canal and that's the only photo I took......so here it is.
