Barrow on Soar to Watermead Park

Another nice day for cruising, the sun has been shining and no rain on the forecast (at least for the next few days). The River Soar is still on amber in a lot of places and still has a lot of water on, making the entrance to Sileby Mill Lock the usual slalom event. Luckily Jo and Ian walked on ahead from Mount Sorrell and set the lock ready for our approach. As the weather held, we decided to moor alongside Watermead Park and bbq rather than going to the Hope and Anchor, especially as England were playing. After a pleasant walk around the lake with Charlie we settled aboard Repent at Leisure to watch the match.

Sileby Mill. We always comment, we wouldn’t want to moor there !!
