|Passing each other|
This part of the Shroppie is very rural and there is a good view of Beeston Castle after Beeston Stone lock. Back in 2009 Ian and I managed to walk up to the ruin without any trouble. Coming down was a different matter and we sure did suffer with our knees. I cried off doing the walk again after Ian suggested it, didn't fancy another week of struggling to walk. We did spy through the trees a herd of deer but the camera refused to focus. To many branches in the way, mores the pity.
Reaching Beeston Iron lock a notice on the lock side advised boaters to go in singly.

|Cant get much more rural.|
And this part of the Shroppie are full of Raptors. Have put some more photos on my Wildlife Blog.
|This Small Tortoiseshell was trying to get it together with this Peacock. Hmm, bit mixed up me thinks.|
