Monday 27 July

We woke early to a dry morning and decided to leave Stratford and make some real headway as the locks were set in our favour. We were away by 7.15am and reached the midway point of Wootton Wawen at noon and pulled in for lunch having done a wash and filled up with water.

We set off again at 1pm and as Storm had done the locks this morning, I did the locks this afternoon.

The canal was amazingly quiet today with very few boats about and we didn’t have to queue for a single lock.

We reached Kingswood Junction by 5.45pm having travelled 13 miles and done 35 locks.   It’s a long time since we’ve had such a full day of boating.
