What a difference a day makes, the gale force gusting winds had dropped overnight thankfully! We awoke this morning to look out of the cratch to find a Cock Pheasant there peering at us. We untied Oakfield and set off to just past Aynho Wharf where there were beaters and men with shotguns on a ‘shoot’ in the field adjoining the canal. The green wellie brigade  gazed at us as we went through Anyho Lock and under the bridge.

The River Cherwell was in the green, so full speed ahead to Nell Bridge Lock and on past the Farm Shop to Kings Sutton Lock.

This lovely canal side dwelling is in a nice quiet spot, en-route we picked up this ‘I’m very strong’ Sainsbury's bag chopped up by us, which came off the prop easily with a little gentle persuasion.
