Weston on Trent

At 09:00 we pulled pins and winded on Tixall Wide in cool sunshine, we crossed the River Trent on an aqueduct before stopping at Great Haywood Junction to top up the water tank. Sue couldn't resist the farm shop while the tank filled.

At Hoo Mill Lock we met a share boat crew out of Aston marina, they quizzed Sue on her knowledge of the  Oxford canal marina's as their syndicate want to move next year.

We stopped at Weston upon Trent and walked to the village green where we had lunch in the Woolpack, The Woolpack is one of those pleasant village pubs with a good atmosphere even though there was only a handful of customers while we were there, the food and ale were very good too.

After the short walk back from the pub we set off again to moor a mile short of the village of Salt. As per the forecast, the rain started to fall at 17:00... it's dark already
