The anchor i bought for the R. Severn trip is now stowed away perhaps not to be used untill next year, still i shall need one sometime so it`s not wasted money.
Down through Rugeley passing this old building dating back some 150yrs and i believe was a mill. Wonder what will become of it after its current use as a car repair yard, housing maybe?
I saw a site recently that was being demolished and the contractor said the canalside small warehouse was going to become flats and the rest of the site houses so maybe a preservation order here and there is no bad thing.
Don`t think anyone will be to bothered if this lot below escapes preservation, it`s Rugeley power
station. So south we head as we are also prevented from going to Burton on Trent because of the River Trents intrusion at Alrewas has caused flooding. Shame really because i wanted to go down through Leicester where one of my boys is farming.
Anyway no real plans at the moment just see how it goes and that`s what this retirement life is all about , no plans, no rush, no worries.
Hi Les, Glad your safe. No Problem is up there. Have read some blogs of boaters caught in the floods. Not nice with locks under the water. The worst we got near Braunston was tight ropes as we went up a foot.
