A walk to the end of the line

A typical misty autumnal morning greeted us this morning as we left Yarwood for a walk to Snarestone, the current end of the Ashby navigation.  We being, Fletcher, Floyd and I..
We left Joe preparing to touch up the gunnel's with a bit of raddle paint.

 The route over the top of the tunnel
 Northern portal with more mowing going on
 Bridge 61, the final bridge before the end of the navigation
 The original pumping station now a private home
The end of the line... for now

    1. Ozzie your typing and spelling is awesome! Floyd sends his thanks and says he will see you soon.

  2. My comment must have been lost - how can Floyd be that age? Where does the time go. He still looks as handsome as ever - met some real, seriously, anti Floyd stiles today and thought of you all
