A Riverside Walk At Kegworth 7/7

Life in the village of Kegworth is inextricably linked to the River Soar, which meanders through the low-lying flood plains and round the eastern and southern edge of the village. Many villagers, as well as people from much further afield, enjoy walking, bird watching, fishing, and picnicking along the banks; and boating has always been popular bringing in visitors from a wide area.

A fine image, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
nice shot, Brian, i like the bottleneck. all looks quiet.
Brian Walbey: Nothing much moves on our canals in February. The bottle neck is a lock.
Se promener là  doit être bien agréable.
Brian Walbey: It was the start and end of the walk for us.

So many people enjoy this activity
Brian Walbey: Indeed they do Chris, we have canals and a river near us.
The reopening of the canal in Droitwich has transformed the centre of the town. These boats are a joy to see
Brian Walbey: Being February the canal was very quiet from the boating point of view, it gets busy in the summer. There is a spur off the Grand Union canal into a canal basin at Lougborough and between 1794 and 1846 there was a canal through Shepshed but after that it was converted into a railway between Coalville and Lougborough, that sadly went a long timr ago although parts of both the canal and railway are still walkable.
You can't beat life in the slow lane canal style
Brian Walbey: We've been on canal boats a few times and it can be very relaxing.
Nice looking longboats!
Brian Walbey: Very well looked after by the look of them.
a wonderful bright and sunny day to capture these two new locking canal boats at the lock... the man pulling the back of his boat into the bollard gives some action to the shot Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: I think he was on his own so was having to berth his boat all alone.
