On the River Trent.

Map picture

Travelled 1.4 miles, worked 2 locks in a time of 1 hour.

A cooler start to the day, so very pleasant.

We left our mooring at 8.45 am and set off towards Castle Lock.

There was already a boat going down in the lock, but the gentlemen on board said they would wait for us at the next lock, which they indeed did.

We pasted by the Old Fellows, Morton and Clayton building.

With the Ashes Test being held at Trent Bridge we saw many fans heading for the ground.

Notts County Football Ground.

Nottingham Forest Football Ground opposite Meadow Lane Lock, where we shared the lock down on to the river with another boat.

Out on to the River Trent for the first time and it is stunning. We cruised past the Nottingham Forest Football Ground.

We moored up opposite the War Memorial, with Mark and Maggie on NB Forever Young.

Fabulous mooring for a few days.

Having sorted ourselves out, we headed off into West Bridgford for a look around and to soak up some of the atmosphere of the Ashes Test.

Aptly named. We trawled the charity shops of which there are many and had a coffee and sausage roll at a cafe, so Keith could rest his back.

Trent Bridge.

The new score board, which at the time was happy reading.

Cricket fans basking in the sun and the atmosphere. The roar when the 9th Wicket was taken was incredible, it made me want to be there.

Nice cuppa.

I bet they will have a fab day today, but sunscreen is needed as it is very warm now. I am really looking forward to looking around further and catching up with Maggie and Mark more.
