Sunday, 11th December 2005:
The pictures on this page show 'Alnwick' iced in at our Winter mooring on the tow path at Fenny Compton near the Wharf Inn but we are now on the move again - on a trip to Burton-on-Trent and Leicestershire via the Oxford Canal, the Coventry Canal, the Trent & Mersey Canal and the Soar Navigation. 'Alnwick' was tied up near Brownsover, Rugby, last weekend. This is a section of canal that Graham knows well because he lived in the area between 1967 and 1977 and enjoyed frequent lengthy walks along the tow path. Our schedule is fairly relaxed but we expect to be in Burton-on-Trent by Friday, 16th December 2005 and in the Loughborough area by Monday, 19th December 2005. If all goes to plan we shall return to our Winter Mooring by Christmas Day.
