Some more old boats at Shackerstone

A month ago, as we were coming past Shackerstone for the second time, more historic boats had moored for the festival.

Here are two views of Darley.

No sign of Blossom, though.

On the same stretch of towpath was steam tunnel tug Hasty...

... and FMC boat Empress (renamed from Emperor?)

I'm looking forward to being able to visit these sort of rallies properly by boat one day.

I'm not sure Hasty counts as an old boat -- as it went in the water barely a year ago...

Oops - I was a bit, er, hasty there! Perhaps that's why I couldn't find out much about it.
