Single Locks again
It was a lovely frosty morning and the wood we put on the fire kept in all night and Derwent6 was still nice and warm and it really felt Christmassy. After breakfast we went on the hunt for wood but couldn't find any, so we set off for Rugby. It was one of those sunny frosty mornings where it feels lovely and fresh and you can see your breath.....you know it's December. Still nothing has been done about the bridge falling apart. Hopefully someone will not have to get hurt before it does. We arrived at Hilmorton and it seemed a bit weird doing a single lock again. We hadn't done one of these since March, as we had been down on the Thames, K & A and Grand Union, all with double locks. We managed to get moored up just past the locks, and then get the wood we had left on the roof chopped up. Al had cooked a nice Toad in the Hole for us and we were ready for it. In the evening we made a start on the Christmas cards!
