Debdale Wharf

Today we set off from Union Wharf in Market Harborough in bright sunshine. It was 1030 as we reversed from our mooring being watched by our temporary neighbours who were enjoying their daily coffee morning. If ever there is a time to make an error it is when being watched by a group of experts. Fortunately we turned in the basin without incident and set off along the arm towards Foxton and the famous flight of locks.
At the junction we turned right heading towards Debdale and Leicester. We are having some work done at Debdale Wharf later in the year so this was an opportunity to see its position on the canal. We winded (turned) just prior to the wharf and found a nice spot to moor prior to the Foxton mooring zone. It is a good rural position, close enough to the pubs for lunch but far enough away to be quite. We will probably stay here for a few days, or may stretch it to a week.


        You can tell spring is here as this cheeky chappy made an appearance on the towpath.
