In and around Warwick

Another peaceful mooring and another solid night’s sleep for us, not bad for an urban location. We set off sometime between 9 and 10, I didn’t really take much notice of the time, and soon arrived at the first of the Cape locks. After a short stop to take on water, we ascended the two locks and found a space on the visitor moorings, just a boat’s length away from the upper water point.

The 48 hour mooring provided us with a good base to explore Warwick, not for the first time of course but it is a lovely town to spend a couple of sunny days in. One of our new ‘finds’ was The Mill Garden where there are unrivalled views of Warwick Castle. The garden is beautiful too of course and there are good views of the river.

I did also manage to find a bit of time each evening to support the local hostelry (The Cape of Good Hope).
