You can smell the chips
We set off from Norton Junction with Alan & Carol on n.b Holly Hobble as they were also going to Braunston and it would be good for us to lock together...The aim was to get diesel and a pumpout at some point, but on the way down the flight Alan could smell the Chips at The Admiral Nelson and we ended up having lunch there, which we can recommend. We then carried on down the flight and got our pumpout at Braunston marina, but no diesel as it was too expensive with no variable split. We then moored up to get some shopping in the village and found it quite empty, this guy never had any problems finding a mooring.We walked back to Derwent6 and decided to move on out into the countryside for a nice peaceful mooring. Carol had done a lovely selection of cheese and biscuits and we chatted the night away.
