Ashby Canal

It's 5pm and 30C

We have slipped off the Coventry canal on to the Ashby canal which in it's heyday transported coal & clay out of the mines at Moira.

A tranquil rural waterway meandering on a level 26 mile pound means, lucky for Sue, there are no locks to sweat over.

I have uploaded some pictures of today's 6 mile trip, I hope you like bridges as much as I do.

We have stopped in Trinity marina for the night to test the inverter on shore power - all is ok.
