Up the Ashby Canal...

We turned off the Coventry Canal at Marston Junction and started off up the Ashby Canal. We had not been here before. A very rural canal which reminded us of parts of the rural Kennet and Avon canal.
Turning at Marston Junction

Sutton Cheney facilities (very welcome!)

A Hare, one of several we saw in that field

Market Bosworth Church

and inside

a cue for an overture?

Snarestone Tunnel

The winding hole

Currently the last bridge

Currently the end.
It does look hopeful that the canal will eventually be linked up with Moira. According to the local, everything is in place, including most of the money. If the extension does happen in our lifetimes we may well visit the Ashby again.
