Upsticks and cruised towards Snarestone through beautiful countryside - it's been a lovely warm day

Very busy traffic on the canal just here ...... it comes so close too... and so fast

Passing Shackerstone Station - you can just make out trains through the trees - it's too early in the year for trains to be running. Last year we travelled on the train from here to Shenton Station calling at the Sutton Cheney cafe for lunch before the return journey - a very enjoyable trip.

Moored just before the tunnel and went for a walk up to the village of Snareshill - some lovely houses here -

definately chocolate box!

St Bartholemew's Church

The village school was created in 1717 (75 years before the Ashby Canal was built) by joining together these 3 cottages. It was extended at the back in the 1970's to accommodate a junior department and takes children from the local villages as far away as Measham.

Had BBQ number 3.
