The canal here is just stunning and feels so peaceful, we only passed one boat all day and the other thing we noticed was the towpaths were in such good condition.
We noticed this fellow and found it funny, when we went through some woods.
We eventually came to the Snarestone tunnel which is another tunnel with a kink in it. It is also very low at the northern end so it was watch the chimney again. We manged to get through ok but coming back may be tricky as the low end was on the opposite side of the chimney.We then came to the terminus and we were a bit worried about turning due to the sharp alcove where hire boats and the like had turned not worrying about their boat. But we managed to turn ok even in the strong winds which had got up. This probably helped us.
We will explore tomorrow! Weather pending!
