We are still at Yelvertoft and we had planned to move today (Saturday) but after waking to heavy rain and winds we made the decision to stay for another day.
A short walk away is the village of Yelvertoft. A very upmarket place with houses built of red brick and they even have a reading room. It does have its own post office/village store and a butchers. We bought some lovely black cured bacon and a free range chicken and for a village butchers it wasn't that expensive. Amazing as it may be but Carolyn came out of a shop having only spent 50 pence on a newspaper
No visit is complete until we have had a wonder around the local church…… No Carolyn i don't think i want to end up in this one.
A bit of sunshine and a few amps from the solar panels are most welcome. The most we get at this time of the year with full sun is about 7 amps.
Tomorrow (Sunday) the plan is to get up early and do as many miles as possible. I would like to be stopped by half past one and have a mooring with good internet….Spurs on sky go…Come on you Spurs.
We are heading for the famous Foxton locks and then a right turn at the bottom lock then into Market Harborough. Then after a day or two we will go back up the Foxton flight and head towards the Welford arm and the village of Welford and have a couple of days in the basin at the end of the arm.
