Rugby

Sunday was a glorious 20C - we had a great afternoon which included Sunday lunch in  Neil Morrissey's pub The Plume of Feathers in Barlaston, with good friends Gordon, Dot, Bev & Roly.  Afterwards Roly gave us a lift back to our boat 56 miles away ....what a star.




Monday was dry but cool as we headed out of Braunston, it was good to be back on the tiller. 

Passing the new Dunchurch Pools marina on the  North Oxford, note the entrance is wide beam sized.

A wide opening into the marina.!




Hillmorton's flight of 3 locks are twin or parallel locks. These locks are the busiest on the network, they have a volunteer crew of lockeepers who have their own website here.



Locklines carved into lock gates beams.

Locklines commemorate the birth of Canal & River Trust in 2012.

We have moored for the night at Rugby Golf club.
