Branston to Alrewas

Both boats left the moorings at 9am and headed for Alrewas.  The weather has kept fine and mostly sunny for us all today.  Here are a few pictures we took along the route.


'Chance’ at Tatenhill Lock


Bex and Craig getting the hang of the locks! (“Oh this looks technical!!”)


Bex and Craig with nb Malvolio.  Having only about three hours under his belt Craig makes an excellent job of threading the boat through the bridge hole!


Here’s Bex working hard under Doug’s instruction!


Here’s one for you Ivy!  when you read this.

We arrived at Alrewas just after lunch and we all walked to the National Memorial Arboretum. We were amazed how much the trees had matured since we last visited 3 years ago and how many more have been planted.  A truly amazing place and well worth a visit to remember all those who have given their lives since 1945 that we might be free and as safe as we are today. 




Our mooring tonight at Alrewas
