Back to Base (well sort of!)

0 Locks, 4 Miles. 1 Tunnel, Now moored at Brownsover Park.

The final leg of our current journey took only 1½ hours to Brownsover with a watering stop at Newbold. We were quite surprised by the amount of available moorings at Newbold as every time we have passed through here in the past the place has been chocker block full. One boat we spotted was that of fellow blogger, Ernie on Nb Ten Bob Note. I love that name as it takes me back to my younger days when ten bob (shillings) was a lot of money. Sentimental old fool I am.

Upon arrival at Brownsover we found the park side moorings full of old live aboard boats so we have had to moor on the tow path side. As this situation is unlikely to change, once Tracey arrives we will head up to Newbold and stay there.

1586 locks, 3313 ½ miles, 53 Tunnels, 43 swing bridges and 39 lift bridges since Nov 2006
