After a quiet night above Earls Barton Lock we moved on to Wellingborough and stopped on the moorings opposite the Whitworth's flour mill.
We were approaching the moorings at what was the Rushden and Diamonds football stadium when we picked up a hitch hiker.
This morning we had fun clearing out the front well, a winters accumulation of grunge was removed and the usual quota of arachnids were rehoused in the nearby hedge. Next job is sweeping the chimney and blacking the stove but that will have to wait until it stops raining every time I poke my head outside.
Watch this space........
