Hooray, we eventually got as far as Bath down what is probably the poshest stretch of canal in Britain.
So now we are near Bathampton, enjoying the sunshine. We lunched at The George, excellent burgers. I know it's not haute cuisine but, although the menu looked excellent, we didn't want anything heavy because of the heat. The Thwaites Wainwright Bitter was spot on as well.
As we bimbled back to the boat the towpath took us under Bathampton Bridge and, oh my, wow.
We will never know who cut these marks but they are a link going back to the people who built our canals. Well I find it fascinating.
Watch this space..........
