Braunston to Cosgrove (26 miles and 19 locks)

So the motor is  officially up for sale via Rugby Boats (please click on this link for video tour/ details and photos), in order that we may pursue our next venture of buying a motor capable of carrying diesel, gas and coal.

Signets doing well as we left Braunston

Norton Junction

Below Weedon

 The beautiful 'Gosport' butty 

New relief road which will carry traffic high over the canal and railway line

Stove lit during the wet cold weather on Thursday morning!  
We had delayed a little our journey, in order to get routine doctor's appointments out of the way in Blisworth.  As soon as I had returned, we set off for Cosgrove and the festival at the weekend.

The sun breaks through as our journey progresses late afternoon

It was still quite windy, so I stayed on the tiller of the butty

Approaching the Navigation at Thrupp Wharf

The lovely Tench

Large and small handbowls hang in the gift shop ready for  this weekend.

Come and see us and the other traders  if you can and support this fantastic effort to get the Buckingham Canal back into water and navigable!
