Beeston to Kegworth

We had an excellent meal at the Victoria Hotel in Beeston last night, only a short walk from the canal moorings. Set off this morning with blue skies and sunshine, making the final stretch on the Trent very enjoyable. From Trent lock it got quite busy and we were queuing for some time at Ratcliffe and Kegworth Deep lock. Finished a fantastic week off by having a final meal with Paul and Jo at the Otter.
