Leaving Moore behind we pootled further along the 25 mile pound (level water where there are no locks to operate) Later the sun appeared to warm us up as we cruised on to moor before Bridge 17. There were many boats moored up and many more on the move, some of which we met in the bridge holes, of course. After a drink + snack aboard we set off going clockwise on a circular womble around the old part of the village. The road surface is mainly cobbled giving it a quaint oldie worldy feeling. Saint Wilfred’s Church gazes down the lane over the two busy pubs, the Parr Arms and the Rams Head. The latter had a sun dial set into the gable end with the inscription ‘’, whatever that means. Nicholson’s Guide says it’s a conservation village and Sherlock Holmes was filmed here. We completed our short amble by returning across Bridge 16 back along the towpath.
