Loldia’s Return Day 1: Pillings Lock Marina to Barrow on Soar

April 8th
River Soar
1 mile, 1 lock

We took the train up to Loughborough on Tuesday afternoon, arriving at 4.30 pm and getting a taxi to the Marina. Once there, we had planned to fill the water tank but the £6 Asda hose we’d brought with us as Loldia didn’t come with one was only 15m so didn’t reach.
Screw it, we thought, let’s go boating! It was a beautiful evening and we didn’t want to spend the night in a marina so we set off along the river.

We moored up at Barrow just above Barrow Deep Lock and went into town to stock up the cupboards in the Co-op.
