Lovely sunsets across the field towards Claydon, then this noisy little boat came chugging past quite late in the evening. This derelict looking farm cottage is near the canal, I wonder if anyone lives in it though?
I stayed inside Oakfield catching up with boaty work while the Cabin Boy steered around all the twiddley bits of this contour canal with a cold wind blowing. We sometimes get asked what do we do all day on the boat? We’ll the answer is that most of the jobs you would do in a house really. We spent one night on top of the world at Wormleighton with loud bangs every so often from those gas powered bird-scarers in the fields.Moving on we passed a “Marina for One’.which looked like the farmer had dug a hole in his canal-side field, dragged a boat in, then blocked off the entrance again with mud. Clever, eh? I wonder what Canal and River Trust will make of this idea?
