A boat came up Haywood Lock which allowed us to descend through it with little effort. It was a pleasure cruising along in the sunshine with four Buzzards soaring way overhead. This is Stonemasons Cottage which has a plaque and fire-mark dated 1710 and has an interesting mini museum in it’s front garden. We passed an oncoming boat which meant that at Colwich Lock we just pushed the lock gate open and went in. A nice young man helped me close the heavy gates too, mmm easy afternoon for me then! Unfortunately the moorings were full just before Wolsley Bridge, but luckily we found an empty stretch with some rings to tie up to just around the corner.
