A rainy start to the day, so I delayed our morning constitutional until it eased about 10:30.
Spent an enjoyable 1¼ hours mooching about the inclined plane restoration and taking photos.

The flight is a lot quieter today than yesterday.
Set off about 12:30, the brisk SW wind not as much as a problem as anticipated, as the towpath side is bordered with mature bushes on most of this section.
Through Husbands Bosworth tunnel and stopped at Kilworth Wharf for smokeless fuel and the Nicholson Guide #2 before arriving at the Welford Arm Junction at around 15:20.
We’ll need this volume if we head towards Birmingham. Immediate plans are dependant on the weather to an extent.
