Penkridge Market.

The weather wasn’t as bad as what is being experienced in Scotland or Ireland but it was very cold. Walking into the cold prevailing wind and light rain was stinging our faces as we headed into town to check out the market.

The market, partly open and partly under cover was still well patronised despite the weather. Even part of the farmers market section was in use selling live chickens, turkeys and ducks which gave it a real rural atmosphere with the roosters trying to out crow each other. We had to feel sorry for the open air stall holders  trying to keep warm in the freezing cold conditions.

The takeaway van was doing a roaring trade in jacket potato’s and steaming hot coffee but we opted to head back to the boat for lunch. We didn’t come away empty handed as I bought 2 casual tops and a cardigan to go with the trouser’s I picked up from the hospice shop yesterday. The latter were brand new with the original docket on them for £19, I got a bargain and only paid £4.
