Another beautiful morning as we set out from Tixall Wide. We had a fairly uneventful trip today and the only occurrence of note is that nb Serenity had a fan belt failure just before Penkridge at Longford Lock. A phone call to Midland
Didlers Chandlers proved unsuccessful as they don’t sell them! So Karen and Ian walked into Penkridge to a garage and managed to obtain one. MC’s loss is the garage’s gain – apparently the garage owner has been telling MC for ages that they are losing out by not selling fan belts!
The old cottage at Deptmore Lock is at last being renovated after being derelict for several years – I looked for a photo from last time we came by two years ago, but it must be on our hard drive and not on the blog. Must be costing a small fortune as it has been totally gutted and half re-built.
