A couple of weeks ago, Dad and I visited Barton Marina in Staffordshire.
The Marina has berths for over 300 boats, mostly privately owned, but including some for hire.
The opening under the footbridge is the access to the Trent and Mersey canal.
This boat was moored alongside the walkway and offered a rather unusual activity...
Craft painting sessions - pots and T shirts.
Also along the walkway are shops and attractions including eating places, a pub, boutiques and this shop selling traditional toys - fun to look around, but a little too over-priced to tempt me to buy.
Personally, I just love looking at the boats!
