Photos of Leicester, the Weir, and Birstall

1:15pm and we're still stuck in Birstall, Leicester waiting for the water level to drop on the river. The morning wasn't a complete write-off as we cooked a tasty stew for lunch and walked down to the marina at Thurmaston lock to buy a bilge pump with built in float switch which I have now fitted.

It turns out that the lock we were hunting for in the dark last night was just on the other side of a bridge that we had walked right past - oops. These things are easier to spot when it's light. It wouldn't have made a difference anyway as the water there is still 6 inches above where it needs to be.
