Lovely countryside around Atherstone on the Coventry Canal

Thursday 7th April

Back to normal with the weather forecast today. Although it didn't rain, they had promised us sunshine and that certainly didn't appear.

Lyra motored her way through the excellent Warwickshire countryside until we encountered Atherstone Locks. This flight of 11 locks raises the canal 80 ft. into the town of Atherstone. Here we'll stop for the night and treat ourselves to fish and chips from the local. Tomorrow we will go and have a look at the local market and haven't decided if we'll stay here or move on after that.
