Ten Bob Note


Monday 29th September 2008

Location: Hartshill, Warwickshire, Coventry Canal

Today: 7 miles, 11 locks. Total distance: 1759 miles.  Total locks: 1247

Pulled the pins at 07:00 and headed on to the Atherstone locks. The weather was a bit on the miserable side as we set off but it soon cleared and the sun came out.

We had a very pleasant trip up the 11 locks that form the flight and only met two other boats as they were starting down near the top.

A lot less boating traffic today, perhaps a lot of folk have seen the Atherstone lock keeper’s note (photo below) about there just being 12 weeks left until Xmas!!

Moored up at a lovely spot near Hartshill, we have never moored here before.

Current Mooring

There must have been some summer ???
