Last night we walked to The Three Horseshoes in Frampton village, a quaint pub with character. Max enjoyed being allowed inside to fraternise with the landlady’s dog.
One patron arrived on horseback and just opened the front door to place her order before stepping back outside to wait for someone to bring her her pint, and quite a few hot and bothered cyclists who appeared to be on a mission and clad in lycra, downed a swift pint and scuttled off again.

We had a quiet day planned for today, catching up with some DIY jobs and putting away winter woollies as we hope the cold days and nights are now over. We’re probably tempting fate!
Max and I walked to the village shop this morning but the choice of items was extremely limited as it really operates as a cafe rather than a shop and they would prefer to feed you themselves. Unfortunately the internet signal is still not strong enough for us to food shop on line.
A tip for anyone planning a trip along this canal – stock up at Sainsbury’s in Gloucester with everything you might need for your stay. Having said that it is only 16 miles of lock free cruising to travel to Gloucester from Sharpness if all else fails.
