It was very busy here over the bank holiday weekend, with boats coming from all directions. There is a shallow lock here, which marks the junction of the Oxford and Coventry Canals. In the past the area opposite was known as Suttons Stop by the old working boat people.
We treated ourselves to a lovely Sunday roast lunch with pudding to follow, at the Greyhound Inn. At last everyone is taking advantage of the sunshine and turning a healthy bronze colour. Himself has donned the shorts, but the cool breeze makes it too cold for me to wear mine, just yet!
As it was a bank holiday weekend and the wether was hot the pub was kept really busy for three days solid. Early the following morning the trolleys were dug out and we walked the three mile round trip down to Tesco in Longford to fill up our store cupboards. Then we left our mooring and took on water at the tap opposite. Down through the stop lock we made the right-angled turn under the cast iron bridge heading northwards on the Coventry Canal.
