A trip round the Leicester Ring in August 2019 stating at Fazeley Mill Marina and ending at Gayton Marina .
After the failed attempt to do the Leicester Ring in June because of heavy rain which caused the canal at Alrewas Lock No 12
on the T&M to be impassable the route was completed in July July. Jean and Roland took the boat to Alrewas, where Howard joined. We travelled to Nottingham where Roland left and Jean and Howard continued down the Soar Navigation to Leicester where Jean left. Howard stayed aboard the boat static just North of Leicester (joined by Laurence for a couple of days) before Jean rejoined and we continued through Leicester and down the Grand Union to Gayton Marina. Mary, Laurie and Iona joined for a day to go up the Foxton staircases.
Here are photos of the trip to Burton upon Trent, then along the Trent and up the Soar.
