The lock at Branston is closed until March 8th. Now I could go down there and wait, but that is another 13 days wasted and I am tired of just sitting and waiting so I have turned around and am heading back to Braunston. I can then go up the Coventry and enter Birmingham from Fazely junction
On the plus side I took my bilge pump out yesterday and cleaned it up. Pointless really because it doesn’t work so I bought another. I bought it at Miller Marine in Shardlow. Miller Marine were very helpful with other stuff I needed. Top people. If you go take a dog treat for the Lab he’s fab.
Currently moored on the Erewash Canal. For time to ft the bilge pump and do a couple of jobs I should have done in Loughborough and visit some friends.
