Birmingham Cheese

LeedsLast night was unbelievably quiet for a city mooring. On the last of the Birmingham market Leeds Marketcheese we set off for Leeds market. Ornate buildings packed with butcherLeedss, fishmongers and anything else you might expect to find in a market of epic proportions.

A quick loop round the very grand streets: Jo Malone, Liz Earle, Space NK – great for perfume samples but nothing in the tried and tested olive/almond oil price bracket.

Murk has found himself quite at home in the Leeds canLeeds marketine Leeds Royal Armouries - Hall Of Steelset. He knows exactly what his usual walk involves and at which points to longingly gaze down into the Aire for his lost tennis balls.

Along the journey here, plenty of people yelled from the towpath that we should visit the Royal Armouries. Moored right underneath, it was only a minute walk to see inside. Four floors of weaponry displayed with varClarence Dock from Royal Armouriesious themes: war, peace, tournament, oriental, self-defence, hunting and the magnificent hall of steel.Royal Armouries Leeds

Signs have appeared on the electric/water posts this evening, mainly scooping three of the visitor moorings for the trip boat but also reminding boaters of moor-alongside etiquette during the Leeds Waterfront Festival this weekend.
