We started our Spring cruise in the week before Easter, with the intension of trading over the Easter weekend in Birmingham, but, having arrived at the boat in snow and ice on the basin, we decided it was not practical. So the first week was spent in cruising in very cold windy weather, arriving in the Ashby canal on Friday.
The weather has now cheered up a bit and we spent the day at Sutton Wharf on the Ashby Canal. This is near Bosworth field, where there is a visitor centre for people visiting the battle site.
We will head up to the end of the navigable section of the Ashby before heading into Coventry next weekend.
