Farewell to Alrewas

Harbingers of spring, snowdrops peeping through the snow in the churchyard at Alrewas.

We are moving on this morning, leaving Nb. Matilda Rose to await their visitors from Norfolk here in Alrewas. Last night we went out to the William IV for a meal to celebrate the end of Jill and Graham's first year aboard Nb Matilda Rose. The Collins guide commends the choice of food and indeed the pub didn't disappoint. Staff were very friendly and helpful even sourcing a bottle of reasonably priced Bubbly compared to the £40 a bottle house version. We feasted on home made ham and chicken pie, cajun chicken stir fry, chicken breast stuffed with feta and spinach and a slab of raw meat masquerading as a steak for Jill - being very squeamish I had to look away as she would not agree to my suggestion that she sat at a different table...some people are just soooo selfish!!!

The Post Office in 'Post Office road' - likely that this is the original Post Office and Telegraph Office.
The view of a slightly frozen canal with Caxton in the distance.

The Church alongside the canal.
