The Ashby Canal once you get past Stoke Golding is really lovely and remote-its a real pleasure to cruise although a little shallow in places.We managed to get out for 2 weeks of very mixed weather, we only cruised in the rain three times,and on a few occasions we had warm sunshine.
|A nice group of canal cottages as we approached Snarestone|
|Our mooring at Conglestone a really lovely spot with the sound of steam trains on the Battlefield Line|
|A mobile chicken run which I assume provides fresh eggs.|
|An interesting structure which I think is made from willow,its at the entrance to the old goods yard,now an industrial estate, at Stoke Golding.|
|These two male Mallard ducks were fighting next to the boat for about 20 minutes.|
|This female mallard duck has decided to nest in a plant tray on the roof of the boat moored near ours at Wigrams|
