Its a beautiful canal. Some of the nicest countryside we’ve seen. Very twisty and turny. The down side is big lack of moorings, if you see one on the end of a lock mooring, grab it. And the towpath is pretty non existent along a lot of the canal. Yesterdays weather was horrid. Rain and wind all day long – too wet for my cameras. We wouldn’t normally bother moving in this sort of weather, not that we’ve had that many bad days of travel, so I can’t really complain. It cleared up a bit when we stopped. We passed the Earth Satellite Station on the way to Enslow Wharf – where we moored for the night.
There are lots of interesting military aircraft in the air at the moment. There must be an aircraft base somewhere close – possibly RAF Brize Norton.
