It was closed so we moved on to Subury hall, a fifteenth century stately home now owned by the National Trust and sunbathed in the gardens until returning to Janet's for fish and chips, from where Derek took us home ,exhausted.

A happy Easter
A beautiful sunny and very warm Easter Friday which saw us exchanging our boat for payment from an obnoxious old man, whose knowledge of narrowboats was minimal, to say the least. The fact that TardisTwo was still winterised obviously irritated him considerably, but the fault lay with the selling agent as we had previously discussed it with them and they took responsibility. The workshops were "extremely" busy but promised him they would do it ASAP. Later he passed some friends of ours but was still not in a good mood, apparently. after a celebratory drink or two we were taken to an Olde -Worldly pub in a very picturesque village of Tutbury. The pub is allegedly the smallest in the UK, which I can easily believer as the boat galley was larger than the bar.
