We set off from the Blue Lias pub at 8.00am in brilliant sunshine, after Mark and Sian topped up with water and Del cleaned the bird's poo off the roof.
We soon hit Bascote Locks where there are two locks joined together forming a short staircase, and if travelling as single boats you can pass between the two. We were in pairs and could just go through like you would on a staircase flight of locks..
We carried on through Leamington Spa, which is so run down around the canal area we didn't feel the need to take any pics, and we also didn't feel the need to stop there. The town itself is lovely and its such a shame we couldn't go..
He knew a good pub, the Rose and Crown, and also a great Indian restaurant Castle Balti.
