This is the stop part of my blog title. I am standing at the first lock of 7 in this flight and as you can see NB VALERIE or any other boat for that matter won`t be going anywhere yet. At the moment BW have this pound and the next drained for maintenance. All of the locks have been shut now for 33 days but hopefully they will be open on Friday 16th.

This is Whilton Marina which sits at the bottom lock of the Buckby flight. The boats in the foreground are for sale and as we have plenty of time to spare decided to get a few keys from the sales office and have a look round some of them. Bit DEJAVU as this was one of many places i visited when looking for a boat. Just as before many different types of layout and fitout styles but none that took my fancy.
The other boats are moored here on a permanent basis to be used when the owners get time but a few are lived on.
This stretch of the Gd. Union as you approach Whilton brings together 3 forms of transport. The M1 runs alonside the canal to my right and the West coast train line to the left.
Some time ago someone e-mailed me that they would be coming out of Whilton soon. If you are reading this sorry i have lost the e-mail so give us a shout be nice to chat
