We went through ten locks in all and we worked out a system where I could help Sue with the heavier gates and paddle gear. This works particularly well when descending but proves more difficult when ascending a lock.
We crossed the border from Warwickshire and are now in Oxfordshire and have moored on a 24hr mooring in Cropredy.
Our mooring is on the right adjacent to the large tree.
Cropredy is a quiet village of attractive stone and has a couple of pubs, a tea room, church St Mary the Virgin and a Spar store. We popped into the The Red Lion which is opposite the graveyard where we both sampled a London Glory.
