River Soar, Zouch
But first, Lenny (see below) was the eldest of two Old English Bulldogs that my daughter Caroline bought and continued to share with her previous partner Adam. Sadly Lenny died suddenly last week at nearly 9 years of age. I am not a dog person but Lenny was a lovely dog, soft hearted, a real character and great with children, we will all miss him. Hopefully his nephew Reggie, their other dog who is now 5, will have a good few years with us yet. (For some reason the image is not being picked up, it was there yesterday afternoon, I apologise for that.)
Todays posting starts a short series taken round my way starting with the River Soar at a small village called Zouch. In the distance is another small village called Normanton and as you can imagine this water is very popular for narrow boats and fishing. Both villages are only a few minutes from Loughborough.
The River Soar rises near Hinckley in Leicestershire and is joined by the River Sence near Enderby before flowing through Leicester (where it is joined by the Grand Union Canal at Aylestone), Barrow-on-Soar, beside Loughborough and Kegworth, before joining the Trent near Ratcliffe-on-Soar in Nottinghamshire, and thence into the Humber and the North Sea.
