Down onto the River Trent, Alrewas section. It was such a lovely spot to stop at above the lock in Alrewas. I think there's a good chance we'll head back for 14 days once the derestriction of the 48 hours maximum stay comes into play in November. I'd like to have a walk back to the national Arboretum to see how it's changed since we last visited in 2013 Link to LJ blog here. We enjoyed a lovely day out taking pics back then, one of which I had printed out for a pressie for Mum and Dad

Back to finding a plod for us and the dog... I inputted a route into my view ranger app that skirted the water park at Branston then crossed the canal to one of the very many Merley gravel pits that has been transformed to a nicely done private members only fishing lake, through some well used paddocks and back along the offside of the canal past the new Burton Town Rugby club site.

|We reversed the route on the ViewRanger app the next day which brought us past the cafe in opening hours, bonus!|
|Deb's Coos have finally got a new home after being taken down from LJ's wall a good couple of years ago|
More boating tomorrow, possibly - not far though... just to Burton
