Horninglow Basin: Tom's Moorings, mural and a belly button
Not even a month ago, and yet it seems like a lifetime. I'm talking about our first trip on Jubilee. On day 3 of this trip, on the Trent and Mersey, we passed Horninglow Basin. This has a striking mural brightening up the concrete wall supporting the A38.
The artwork is a montage of canal scenes. I wonder what the significance of "W+S" on the bridge is. Perhaps they are the initials of the artists.
In the basin was narrowboat Belly Button. Granny Buttons, Belly Button ... are there any more Button boats?
And the sign (can you spot it in the top photo?) indicates that these are "Tom's Moorings".
