It was quite busy at the locks and we teamed up with a boat called Floss which made things easier. We passed a hire boat crewed by 3 teachers with 8 young girls who were having a wonderful time. They were heading for the tunnel and were going to have a screaming competition. I’m just glad they weren’t in there when we were.

The moorings in Braunston were all full by the time we got there so after popping into Midland Chandlers we turned up the Oxford branch and moored in a nice quiet spot just past a sunken boat. There seem to be a lot of residential moorings up here, several of which had small veg plots and generators running.
