After Saturday’s rubbish I thought I’d better do something worth doing. Walked from Ranby to Retford along the Chesterfield Canal towpath. Weather was quite nice as I started out, sun poking through clouds.
First, of course, I had to walk round Godfrey’s pond (or Sandhills lake as the council want it) and down the canal to Worksop:
|From the bridge …|
|… and from the towpath|
|Nb Steel Away was moored just east of Ranby|
|A very handsome boat, she’d picked up a “Patrol Notice” from BW.
I rang the owners when I got home & told ’em
(They’d left a contact number on the boat)
There are some beautiful willows on the stretch from Ranby to the Barracks bend.
|Any time of year but especially spring & autumn, they’re beautiful|
proximity of Sherwood Forest
Told you they had unco names
a Birds the Butchers corned beef salad sarnie:
|I hadn’t noticed the cages over the paddle mechanism before|
|A nameless boat moored up and a solitary swan|
|Excellent house for sale
Old canal warehouse, I believe
