Polesworth is a lovely village, with the added bonus of having a tasty fish ‘n’ chip shop. With the village having a handy stores, green grocers, butchers etc., it looked a great place to stay.
The day after we arrived, we flagged down Ricky who runs a vintage barge on the canal, selling diesel, coal and gas, for supplies. There’s something not quite natural having a fuel seller come to you, when we normally have to travel to a garage to top up with fuel.
While in Polesworth, John caught a bus back to Trinity Marina to pick up our Spanish car. The next day he ‘leapfrogged’ the car to Great Haywood Marina, where we’d booked a mooring for a week while we organised getting the car back to Spain. We’d managed to sell the car to a local car dealer in Spain, and of course getting the car to them was down to us.
We stayed in Polesworth from 25th February to 3rd March.
