On Friday i posted a photograph of a very large building along the Coventry canal, thanks to friend DSCF8889on the internet I now know what this building use to be, it was The Coventry Ordinance Works. Lots of information HERE .  As for the stones, again thanks to friends via  the internet, they are part of the Coventry Art Trail, number 14 see HERE .
Mike Todd thanks for the information from your blog.

The weather is definitely turning colder and at half eight this morning it was 1.4°C but bright and fine only reaching 4°C all day. I don’t think I have ever seen so many boats moored in Nuneaton, I counted 10 moored towpath side so things must be improving in town, however I did see a scooter parked in the canal on the edge of the park area, probably someone's pride and joy stolen.DSCF8907
We didn’t see a boat on the move until we got to Springwood Haven where one winded in front of me with no indication of his intentions. At Atherstone The Rothen group had several of their boats moored up, they do keep them looking smart.DSCF8910

Near bridge 37 I spotted a builders bag just floating so we backed up and retrieved it, one of these round the prop can cause damage to a boats gearbox and engine mounts. We carried on into Atherstone to moor for the night just before the locks with 3 other boats.
