We pulled ropes through rings at 09.15 and then filled with water and got rid of waste before stating our five and a half mile cruise in to Coventry where we intend to spend a few days and hopefully enjoy the city. Passing through this bridge as we leave Hawkesbury you just have to admire the artwork on the railings as you pass under.
Passing the Ricoh stadium which is the home of Coventry City football club . I don’t think I would want to be a Coventry supporter at the moment as the club is in serious trouble at the bottom of the league.
It’s amazing how people just seem to chuck their rubbish over their back garden walls and in to the canal . It seems to be some sort of city mentality that canal’s are just dumping grounds for their rubbish.
After just over a two hour cruise we arrive in the basin and the end of the Coventry canal . To be honest on first impressions we were pleasantly surprised . The area with in the basin was clean and tidy and with several security camera’s and plenty of lighting we felt reasonably secure.
