We had a walk up the hill into the village, en-route we could see the Rugby Cement Factory busy in the distance. As we approached we saw the village Millennium plaque set into a large stone and the Church of St Marys dates back to the 13 century.

This type of image used to adorn boxes of chocolate, this lovely thatched cottage stands right beside the main road.

A WW2 Pill Box stands guard over the towpath near Bridge 66 and a disused Railway Viaduct spans the Golf course. It is a shame that these have not been turned into useful cycle-ways as we have seen in other parts of the UK. Maybe they all will when motoring becomes too expensive in the future.

The towpath hereabouts is in a sorry muddy eroded state in places.
