We had a very peaceful night with Charlie and all slept in till late so we didn’t start moving again until 1.00. We turned into Kingswood Junction, through the well bashed bridge and through a very narrow link onto the Stratford Canal.
After the wide Grand Union Canal and the very wide locks it all seemed just a bit too narrow. Would we fit?
We soon got used to it again and carried on down past beautiful barrel-roof lock cottages
and under the M40 which was very noisy and the traffic was almost at a stand still.
