We pulled into Mercia Marina and moored on the Midland Chandlers pontoon, so I could pick up some engine oil. Then we carried on to Willington and moored up and had lunch before having a quick walk around the village.

What appears to be the centre of Willington.

Looking towards the village centre, and railway bridge from the canal bridge. The railway bisects the village on a high embankment and appears to be quite a busy line.

The Dragon canalside pub/restaurant by the bridge.

Hadar safely moored up in Willington.
