As always when moored at Alrewas we are out and about in the village and along the towpath. The picture above is looking back towards the village lock from the river section of the Trent and Mersey canal. With a few days of rain the water was just about touching the yellow on the marker which means proceed with caution.
Here we go again and yes Alrewas is still in the top three Churchyards for my final resting place .Carolyn said it will be so handy as it’s next to the canal with good moorings for boating friends to come and visit me as they pass through.
With out any doubt this has to be the best butcher anywhere on the canal network . Just mention Alrewas to any boater and they will all say heve you been to the brilliant butchers there . Luckily we just got there as they were closing for the day ‘but managed to get the biggest juiciest Pork chop you have ever seen for dinner tonight. We also bought Pork sausagees ,steaks and their homemade beef stir fry ..Yum yum.
As we travel around we see more and more of these defibrillators this one is outside the local co-op . Its the first time that I’ve actually read the instructions on one and was surprised to see that you had to ring 999 to get the code to open it up and then be instructed in how to use it. Anyway I think it’s a great idea and there should be a lot more of them .
