Sorry - no up to date picture. This one is of Plank Lane on the Leigh Branch of the Leeds and Liverpool. For some reason I can't find the photos.
Braunston, as expected was full of boats, mile upon mile. We crept through very early in the morning. We got to Hilmorton top lock with just one boat in front, fortunately these locks are
doubled and before we could get into ours there were already 4 boats behind us waiting to go down. There were boats in all the locks coming up so it was a nice easy run.
We stopped soon afterwards and left them all too it.
Today we were up early again and on our way and the boats are beginning to thin out a bit. We moored up just after the turn off for the Ashby Canal and I walked into Bedworth to do some shopping.

No 3 of the Christmas set. This one uses the backing paper that I made and printed, torn at the top. A re-used Christmas Card tree mounted on cold card with notched corners and red string tied around it, then mounted on green and red card. Three holographic peel-off stars are lined up in the top right hand corner.

I have almost made our family Christmas Cards and have made up some sets of 5 cards of canal scenes which need to be photographed before I can post.
