Left Weston-on-Trent last Thursday up to Willington where we stayed until Monday and have been here at Branston (just through Burton-on-Trent) at Bridge 34 since. Depending on weather tomorrow (heavy rain is forecast) we plan to travel to Alrewas.
Lovely walk around Branston Lake which is, we would estimate, about two foot down in water level so Foxxie not too impressed as she normally has a good stick fetching game in the lake! It is a reclaimed gravel pit with a maintained footpath all the way round. It's only about half-a-mile round but nothing to stop us doing a few circuits!
Had a lovely meal on Jandai last Thursday evening when friends Andy and Stephen joined us for a veggie curry, homemade Welsh cakes and real ale - a good time.
Super sunny weather this last week although the nights are cold so fire in full swing from around teatime.
Since last blog we have done … 6 miles and 6 locks
Total since Setting Off ….. 1433 miles and 1171 locks
