The Waterfront Inn. – West Stockwith.

Wednesday 9th June 2021.

We left Sherwood Forest and drove East and then North to tonight’s stopover The Waterfront Inn, it costs £6 per night to stay here, it’s an extra £4 to hook up to the electrics which we opted to do as we have a heavy stocked fridge.

The Inn is situated opposite a marina which opens out onto the River Trent.

This serves as an entrance/ exit to the Chesterfield canal which runs along side the pub, we walked some distance along that in the evening during which time Layla managed twice to “accidentally “ fall in.

Lock gate to river and marina.

We walked alongside the river to the village and here another river the River Idle flowed into the Trent controlled by a sluice gate.

After our evening walk we were of course thirsty and partook of some liquid refreshment . The landlord and landlady were a friendly couple very helpful, the pub is well used and served good meals, we will certainly consider returning here again when we next head in this direction.
