When I walked up to the Co-op I saw a planning application notice on a post. Apparently the proposal is to build 6,200 new houses, with schools etc on the old Rugby Radio Station site. If so, this idyllic mooring spot will be overlooked by it all one day. What a great shame that will be. If you are interested in looking at the plans for it go on, www.planningportal.rugby.co.uk and look for R11/0699.
The morning was mainly spent shopping up at the Co-op then getting my hair cut for a tenner in Stylerz. After a snack I strolled down the locks and noticed that Badsey’s Bistro has won gold awards over the last five years for their excellent food. This is all beautifully prepared by the Canal Chef who works alone in the kitchen. They are very friendly place and chat endlessly to all their customers. I like the little old green Austin truck that is parked outside. Btw the cafe is named after their liveaboard ex-working boat Badsey which is moored just outside. Another lovely sunny, but cool, breezy day we have enjoyed.
