Well ya booh to them. We found the Soar a delight all the way
and as for Leicester, we rather liked it, both on the way in, and the way out.
The plastic bag and shopping trolley count here is way way below other places I could mention.
Since I last posted on the blog we have moored at Barrow upon Soar, Birstall ( a pleasant suburb of Leicester), and right in the centre of Leicester at Castle Gardens where they have a good mooring pontoon with a locked entrance into a park, which is also locked at night. All very secure and actually quite attractive. No one peicestered us at all (sorry). Here we are just arriving. The city centre is 5 minutes stroll away.
So don't listen to the doom and gloom mongers. Come on in, the water's lovely.
Now we're back out in the sticks at Kilby and if I write any more I'll be late for the pub, so see you soon.
