Ashby de la Zouch Canal

The destination for our canal trip is Bosworth Field. The Battle was fought on 22nd August and we intend to be well away before anyone arrives to re-enact it. We have plied our way along the Oxford Canal passing through the Newbold Tunnel, navigated the challenging Hawksbury Junction on to the Coventry Canal and thus via Marston Junction on to the Ashby Canal.

The photos show the Newbold Tunnel lit with money from a regeneration programme (which also included restoring the tow path) evidence of sustainable energy on a barge (all the windmill are called Rutland 913) and the crew preparing to go to the pub.
Tomorrow we should reach Bosworth.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
