The old cooling towers of Willington Power Station - taken from the bridge over the River Trent. They have a certain majesty about them.
on the other side of the Trent, the stiletto-sharp spire of the church at Repton.
Canal Time boaters have really been the only committed crews to cruising in the wind and rain this week. I supposed that the river section between Shardlow and Sawley was still OK as the hire boats have kept coming to and fro and I know that they come out of Sawley Marina. Wrong! I found out today that they have been setting off from Shardlow instead as the river is running too fast for safe navigation.
There’s a picture in today’s paper of the River Ouse at York – that was where we were hoping to get to this year. Maybe late Summer/early Autumn will be a safer time to visit than the Spring!? Megan is coming home on Monday – perhaps she’ll bring some of that hot, Spanish sunshine with her! Yeah, right!!
