Wednesday 19 March

Two cast iron aqueducts, six miles and 13 locks to the outskirts of Stratford Upon Avon today, where we were stopped by a lock closure.   We moored up and walked on  down to the junction with the River Avon, had a mooch around, bought an ice-cream and strolled back to the boat where the effects of lots of sunshine and fresh air overwhelmed us.  We’re going to stay here for three days and meet up with friends on Saturday.
