Firstly, no complaints about the Victoria Park visitor’s moorings. We spent two pleasant and peaceful nights there. The only complaint would be about the cyclists on the tow path, it is a bit like the M25 at times and they don’t slow down when passing walkers.

Moved down to Limehouse Basin this morning but there was no room at the inn so we filled up with water and moved on to Three Mills. The plan is to head back to the basin tomorrow as we know that at least two boats are leaving in the morning.

Not the quietest mooring spot in the world here at Three Mills as we are only yards away from a railway bridge carrying a very busy line. Still, not to worry as we are only planning on staying here for one night.

There is a large Tesco store conveniently located right beside the canal opposite the mills.
