This little ladybird seems to be around a little too early if you ask me.
Nuneaton......What on earth has happened to Nuneaton??
This was the only bit of colour in the whole drab, dreary and filthy place it is now. The canal is a bit of a joke as it is just a mass of floating debris.
Polythene is the name of the game for the propeller around here.
We were only saying yesterday how much Atherstone had gone down hill since our last visit but..........Nuneaton, that wins hands down and I am sorry to say that on balance it is far worse than Blackburn or Burnley.
For those of you whose boats are too big to get you there, that is really saying something, believe me!
This is a bit out of sync but I thought I might as well go with the theme. The BW yard at Hartshill has been like this since last year, when they cannot even be seen to fix their own yard........ alarm bells should be ringing.
The poor old Navigation, a canal pub for years. Now just a boarded up ruin.
A quick left turn through Hawkesbury Junction/Sutton Stop onto the North Oxford.......
.........found us in a completely different world. This one of no prop clogging rubbish and a little bit of obvious maintenance.
The only things marring this bit of the system are the M69, the M6 and the high speed rail link, but hey, you can't have everything.
