After yesterday, travelling further than we really wanted to, we took a short trip to the Erewash canal and are now moored just above the first lock.
A short break and then a wander round to check the lie of the land,two pubs and a tea room but we resisted temptation, maybe tomorrow.
A Dutch Barge moored opposite decided to turn round as he wanted to go back onto the Trent, well he nearly made it but then decided to go down backwards down the lock.
Into the lock
Reversing out or going astern and yes that bridge is very close
Made it through the second bridge and away on the Trent
We found out later that they had only just bought it, it needs a little work apparently but the beaming smiles on their faces said a lot.
