With rain this morning we did a few more jobs and then went for a walk around lunchtime. Though it was a bit flooded, we had our wellies on. Good job when you see these pics.
This path took us to the place where the horses used to be taken over the hill while the boats were legged through Crick tunnel, and they have now called the road Boat Horse Lane. It was full of lovely thatched cottages with some of them dating back to the 1600 century.
This brought us back to Crick village, (were we now know the woman in the Co-Op) and then we walked back to bridge 12..... does anyone know what the tap is for hanging from the centre of the bridge, only we're not running on steam.We then went on to Crick marina for some coal and check out their price of diesel (and diesel split). We brought two bags of their best smokeless for £8.75 using the sackbarrow.
It was then back to Derwent6 for something to eat and the ducks got the stale bread.
