Sawley Church

In recent weeks our travels have seen us alongside the River Trent at Holme Pierrepont and the Victoria Embankment in Nottingham. Previously we had also visited the nature reserve at Attenborough which is also on the Trent and this time we are a little further upstream beyond Long Eaton at Sawley Marina. From the main concourse of the marina, this view across the fields is towards Sawley Church.
Still Waters

The Trent lies between the church and the marina as does the Sawley Cut which is just beyond the footbridge in this image. Another small boat is entering the still waters at the marina.
To The Footbridge

Between the marina on the left and Sawley Cut to the right this path leads to a footbridge. This idyllic scene belies the fact that there was a cold wind blowing and storm clouds were gathering overhead.
On The Sawley Cut

Some of the attractive spring flowers in the bed by the Sawley Cut were doing their best to match the craft moored nearby.

There is water all around and over 400 moorings available at the marina but this boat was on dry land. That's probably the mystery.
A Threatening Sky

As we prepared to leave Sawley Marina, it was not a moment too soon. The threatening sky lived up to its promise and we pulled off the car park in a hail storm.
