Our journey to Cropredy was in a mixture of weather, sun, occasional showers, cool breeze, blue and grey skies. As we cruised along through Fenny Tunnel we only encountered one other boat. Two BW contract workers were cutting trees back and clearing the overhanging scrub. Hooray, no more scratches all along the paintwork when we pass other boats next time.
I liked this little miniature nut-garden by one of the the lock gates. We passed through the only other pair of cast iron lock gates on the system which are at Claydon. The other pair have just been refurbished and reinstalled at Hillmorten, remember?
