Day 5 – Newbold

Getting a bit behind – that’s what boating does. The days all merge. Paused at Rugby Visitor Moorings – quick trip to Tesco and then on to Newbold. So hardly any hours done at all today. Not stopped here before but there’s a pub and Mark said he’d drive over from Barby to see us.

The huge earthworks for the new bridge at Clifton, for the huge new housing estate
Followed by the serene bridge
And not much further on . . . Newbold
Someone described my tiller pin as “Navigation Teddy”
Had a nice visit from Mark & Pancho & Layla – had a good walk around the quarry park nearby too
This is the way in to the Barley Mow
And a lunchtime pit of Purity by Mad Goose (or is that the other way around – who cares?)
