Stoke Bruerne to Watford locks 16 miles and 7 locks

After a fairly quiet (but this does seem to be more the way at Stoke Bruerne) weekend, we set off at teatime Sunday to get through the tunnel.

Because we had set off so late in the day, we knew that mooring space for our boats would be at a premium, but then that is our fault for setting off when everyone else has retired for the day!  

Our evening cruise took us way past Gayton Junction, finally ending a mile or so further on.  An early start got us missing a lot of the traffic along this busy stretch

Approaching Weedon and the optimistic caravanners...

Weedon Wharf

Finally our evening resulted in a slap up meal in the New Inn at the top of the Buckby flight for my birthday

Another early morning on Wednesday, leaving Norton Junction after a day of extreme windiness and rain on the Tuesday, but not much better!

View towards the junction

Turning right, we are now on the Leicester section of the Grand Union canal and our destination for the next 2 weekends.  The festival weekend at Foxton is the second weekend. Please try and come and see us and the other colourful attractions at Foxton this year!

Meanwhile, I try to get some stock built back up for the show!
