The return passage down the Ashby was fraught with problems: extremely shallow areas, a family in front of us who had just picked up their first hire boat (travelling at just over tick-over) and dredgers.
The plan is to be home for Saturday evening which means we need to be in Fradley for Thursday evening. To this end we pushed along to more just north of Nuneaton. The last time we came through Nuneaton it was cold and hailing. At the time I said it was a dump and even the rats had moved out. I thought that my recollections were tainted by the weather, so this time I look through sunshine and fresh eyes. Nuneaton is still a dump that even the rats have moved out. On to the Atherstone flight today.
