The Ashby Adventure

Turning onto the Ashby canal, twenty one and three quarter miles long ,no locks , one tunnel, sixty bridges.
All new for Emily Bronte
Brian , his favourite hobby, the last of the ash from Milton Keynes.
Jane's favourite hobby.
Stoke Golding, Sunny mooring!
Bosworth Field Battle sight, 
Shackerstone, beautiful  moorings next to a Motte and Bailey, this is where Jane would like to moor when she is old and decrepit. 
Snarestone black hole.
At the very end. well worth a visit.
A view of Measham across the fields, perhaps the canal will flow through there next time we are here.

Family Holiday in Middleton in Teesdale.

This is the Chapel we stayed in to celebrate big sisters special birthday,
Very spacious with plenty of space for all 14 of us, Complete with full size snooker table and sauna room.
Meal times meant full time catering, luckily we had lots of willing cooks.
Especially when it came to making chocolate pudding!
Birthday girl and beau.
Eventually! suited and booted we went to see High Force.
High Force at its best after 2 months of rain.
The Three sisters ( scary how alike we are )
