All along the navigation through Leicester are these chains strung along the towpath wall. Searching the internet has not thrown up any reason why they should be there.
We made an early start before the day got too hot and were soon passing this tower block which had letters in each landing window spelling Leicester Champions down from the top. In fact all along our travels for the last couple of days there have been Leicester Flags and bunting out on many properties backing on to the river.
Passing Blaby we could see the mill across the fields which was powered by the River Sence.
We moored up at Kilby Bridge just after mid day before it had got too hot.
Later we went to the Navigation pub by the side of the bridge for a meal.
