|Lock 10 Atherstone flight|
It was also at this point that we became aware of the sound of motor bikes in the distance. The nearer to Polesworth we got the louder the sound. Turns out it was the Motocross mx club at Stiper's Hill doing some sort of competition. With Ian below and me on the helm, it's a wonder I didnt steer straight into the bank, that enthralled I was at what was going on. Managed to get these photos and would have loved to have stopped to watch, but Fazely was our destination to get moored before the Rugby started at 13.00.
Surprise surprise.....no queue at Glascote locks for a change. It's a bone of contention in our book that we always get held up at these two locks, especially at lock 13. It leaks like a sieve and there is a wonderful ode to that lock pinned on the rails. If you fancy a read of 'The tale of lock 13' click on August 2014 post and scroll down the page.
