From Nottingham to Barrow upon Trent

My first day on the Trent & Mersey Canal started busy. First I had to visit the cycle shop for new brake pads as I lost one of them on my tour to Newstead Abbey. Afterwards I took the cycle route number 6 down to Nottingham and its Castle Marina. I had to buy new maps, the english post does not seem to be very reliable :(
But finally I was on the canal again!
I went along Attenborough Nature Reserve, and the big canal junction at Trent Lock. Here meets the River Soar the Trent & Mersey Canal and the Erewash Canal. From there on the towpath was quite bumpy again, but I managed to reach a camp site near the canal between Derby and Barrow upon Trent for my first night.
