We had an early start cruising off along though ‘Fenny Tunnel’ to the top of Claydon Locks x five. The Oxford Canal Co built their stables and workshop alongside the top lock where we began out descent from the summit pound. We were not surprised to see that the lovely red brick cottage in it’s idyllic setting beside this lock is still up for sale. After all there appears to be no vehicular access and no visible mains services. All eight locks were against us today and no other boats were on the move either. Annoyingly some of the bottom gates had been left open too, so we took our time. I thought this was a good solution for those with no pets aboard, paint yer own on the side, lol.
