Down The Atherstone Flight

The Top Lock at Atherstone
From an overnight stop at Rugby we cruised slowly past moored boats so stopped at Hawkesbury Junction at the far end of the moorings on the Coventry  Canal. I needed to do a load of washing which meant running the engine to use the Travel Power.

Today we had a long day taking us down the Atherstone 11 Locks. Good today because we had the help of 2 volunteers and boats coming up the flight so locks gates were open ready for us. The lock gear and gates are certainly  easier on the narrow canals.

We finally moored up  at a little spot where the railway runs behind a small hill at Bridge 50. Chilling time now.
