Through Nottingham to a Chicken and Leek Pie

Monday 27 July the Nottingham and Beeston Canal

After Sunday with the family, seeing our great niece Orlaith, great nephews Jake and Flynn and their slaves, we set off late for Trent Bridge. The Trent was wide and lovely under a cloudy sky. Locking up onto the canal, we watered up and John took Jessica in her new cat harness for a walk ... Not keen yet, but ok. We are always surprised how pleasant Nottingham and the Beeston canal are. The stretch of river up to Cranfleet has its moment, too, including that rather strange outward bound place on Barton Island, with camouflage nissen type hut and sponsored by the lottery? We locked up with Peter and family on Free Thyme, a fellow Retford and Worksop Boat Club family. A tasty chicken and leek pie at The Trent Lock completed a windy but good day, moored up on the Erewash canal.
