|Approaching Eastwood Lock|
The rest of the journey went without hitch. Ian had to get his pole out again ( careful ) when a small reed island tried to impede the closing of the lock gate. 4 3/4 hours after leaving Langley we pulled onto the mooring by our bungalow. This is where we will stay for the weekend, sorting out a few problems our tenants have and then hopefully on Monday we pull pins and head for Stafford boat club and our friends wedding.

One final photo. Back in September 2012, I reported on the fire and pollution at Stanton recycling plant. Well I am pleased to report that there are 100's of healthy looking fish fry at the waters edge by our moored boat. Life has returned to the Erewash.
