An easy day today, only four locks. I was surprised by how much new housing has been built alongside the Coventry on the Fradley to Fazeley stretch. A small queue built up at Glascote Locks and we followed a slow boat for a while, so it was nearly 3:30 by the time we stopped just up the first two locks of the Atherstone flight.
After a short rest we cycled in to Atherstone, had a look round the town, bought a few bits an pieces and cycled back.
It’s been really hot this afternoon and a bit humid. The digital thermostat in the boat was showin 31.2°C in the shade!
Seen earlier in the week. No mention of navigation or boating!
