We left Snarestone and motored all day in glorious sunshine enjoying the flora and fauna along the way.
We’ve met one or two boaters complaining about the canal as it is quite shallow in places but we have found that providing you moor where facilities exist, then it is quite delightful. The Ashby Canal is totally lock free along its 21 mile length and is allegedly the longest contour canal in England.
We made contact with the computer shop who advised us that we could pick our laptop up on Friday afternoon. We found a mooring on the outskirts of Hinckley where we could stay for 48 hours.
