(The ‘Poetry of Bridges’ along our route today…)
We rose 28ft. through Kings Sutton Lock (10′ 8″), Grant’s Lock (9′ 6″) & Banbury Lock (5′ 10″) on our return to Grimsbury Wharf today.
Through the Civil Parishes of Bodicote and Adderbury.
We travelled a total of ten miles.
Four miles out, to the winding hole at Nell’s Bridge, and then six miles back to Banbury.
It took us over five hours.
As a result of what ended up being a long day journeying, old ‘Eileen’ is now safely back on her mooring; we’ve caught a little sunshine; everyone’s limbs and digits are in tact and, despite the inevitable fractious moments and generally frayed nerves, we live to boat another day.
