Back To The Beginning Of The Ashby Canal

Stoke Golding from the Ashby canal
 Today we left Market Bosworth and had a long day by choice as the weather was beautiful- sun, sun and more sun. Ben and I had a good walk, not too much mud on the first few miles towards Sutton Cheyney Wharf. We pulled in there to top up the water tank to replace water used over the last few days and a load of washing done on the way.

At Sutton Cheyney Wharf we spotted NB Plum with  John and his wife. They sell solar panels and John fitted two onto NB Bendigedig when we were at Tixall Wide. He's still  a very busy man and we told him how pleased we are with the panels he fitted and the difference they have made to diesel consumption.

We passed Stoke Golding, didn't fancy all the ants anyway and Hinckley. Near Burton Hastings the moorings were full so we continued on our way to Bridge 3 hoping for a space and yes there was a space so we moored up. It rained just after we finished our chilli con carne- it was a hot one so we needed a beer to cool our mouths- good job there was a bottle in the fridge!
