At the weekend we found two circular walks near Swarkstrone. The first which we did on Saturday went down the canal from bridge thirteen to bridge twelve. Then leaving the tow path to our left we crossed fields of rape seed before going over a small bridge then another field to the church. We then took the track to the road. Crossing the road we followed a small road to Swarkstone lock, then returning along the tow path. Our Sunday walk took us back along to Swarkstone lock then we followed the route of the old Derby canal before turning left up a wide track then over a field to the road.following the bus route back to bridge thirteen. Monday morning we left our mooring and headed to Weston upon Trent where we watered up before mooring just above Aston lock. While traveling Marlene did the washing which dried nicely in the sun. Yesterday we dropped down Aston lock and moored just above Shardlow No2 lock. For the last couple of days both me and Marlene have had a bit of a summer cold,getting a bit better now should be fine for the weekend.
