ASHBY Canal terminus

The Ashby Canal Association has been busy at the Snarestone terminus of the canal since my last visit some years ago. The winding (turning point) hole has been improved now being larger than i remember or is just the metal piling that has been re-newed that gives an illusion of space.

In the picture above the elsan housed in the little brick building on the left hand towpath marked the end of the canal.

A walk up the path shows the added section complete with swing bridge which will be swung open if you wish to take advantage of the extra mooring space.

The very end and more was due to be dug out within days of our visit so i expect it to be around the bend by our next visit.

At the moment we are making our way along the Coventry towards the Rugby area and eventually south down the Gd Union to collect Jaq`s boxes. The ship is currently in port at the panama canal.

So exactly where are you going to put, "22 boxes of Jaq's posessions"? Have the two of you bought a fleet of widebeams! Best wishes, Matilda Rose

Hi Jill & Graham
At the moment building a cupboard for some kitchen gear and book shelves so that`s probably half the boxes. They are small cardboard boxes and not those tea chests the removal people used years back.
It`ll all come out on the blog sometime.
