Sunday 10th April
Friday we took a walk into town to find the market. It's a lovely little place, but the market was a disappointment. A few stalls selling not a lot of interest. There was a fishmonger and a butchers van but we didn't need either.
The car finished at auction Friday afternoon and I was soon contacted by the successful bidder to set up a time to pick it up. Saturday suited us both, and very helpfully he came from Rugby which meant he could pick me up here in Atherstone as he was passing.
Saturday morning we again strolled into town and did some provisioning at the local Co-Op. In the afternoon Neil and a friend picked me up and we drove to Stafford. Neil was pleased with his purchase ( he should be!) and drove me back to Atherstone.
Today we set off heading for the Ashby Canal. Since climbing Atherstone Locks on Friday there are no more locks for quite some time making this a lovely lazy cruise.
At Marston Junction we turned up the Ashby Canal and have moored up at Attleborough for the night.
