At the top of Calcutt Locks we could see the storm clouds gathering in the distance. I very much enjoyed strolling around the area, especially Napton Reservoir. I presume that this delightful barrel-roofed hut was the old pumping station.

We also spotted a man who seemed to be training his horse.

Loads of boats of all shapes and sizes past us by, fast and slow, in both directions.

Well I suppose we were near to Calcutt (250 boats), Ventnor Farm (250) and Wigrams Turn (220) Marinas as we saw the same boats go forth and back. A large number of hire boats were making the most of the end of the school holidays too.
