W.R.G. and is waiting to join the next work party on the Thames and Severn Canal. I will put in a disclaimer here, I have no connection with that splendid bunch of people who do so much to forward the restoration of so many canals except as an admirer.
The head of navigation is currently a bit beyond the moorings at Lechlade but we were advised that the winding point at the junction of the Thames and Severn Canal is rather silted up we turned below the bridge and after mooring and enjoying a well earned cuppa we walked up to Inglesham.
Looking at the depth of water and the sandbanks here I think we might just have managed to wind, we're fifty seven foot, anything longer would struggle.
Lechlade itself is a lovely example of a Cotswold town,
This morning we topped up the victualling store and are now sitting out the last day of bad weather for a while. If you can believe that you can plait soot.
Off back downstream tomorrow.
Watch this space.......
