We moored at the water point at Hartshill and was lucky to be able to talk to the owner of the Toll house Pictured,
The house is built on a tunnel in the late 17 century where the boats passed through to pay their tolls
The house is currently owned by a musician and use part of the house as a rehearsal room.

We have spent the last four weeks squeezing in the last few items into their respective storage space with the help of the Velcro,spring clips and hooks.
We travelled from the marina and spent a few days at Weedon before we set of to Market Harborough with the help of Claire,Craig and Matt on the Easter Weekend who made it their target to get us there whilst I shuffled the car.
After spending a few days at Union Quay looking around this wonderful market town we made the return journey to Norton Junction where this weekend our friends Dave and Sue came up and assisted us in getting the boat to Atherstone locks were we are presently moored between locks 5 and 6.
Cassie was very subdued her first few weeks back on the boat as we think she missed Meg and all her friends at Helen's but has now got used to being the ships dog.
Her first birthday is on Thursday and we wish Cassie, her brother and sisters a happy birthday.
I will post some pictures of our trip,Cassie and promise to update the blog site on a regular basis.
