We cruised to Napton on the Hill and moored in between locks 8 & 9 of the Napton flight. A good Sunday lunch was eaten at the Folly Inn.
Monday - overcast and cool.
Walked into the village for some groceries and then set off under grey skies. We were helped through lock 9 by a volunteer lock keeper, then we cruised for a further six lock free miles and are now moored near the village of Flecknoe

I am arranging to have our fuel polished in Braunston, not because I think we have bugs in the fuel but as I don't know when the fuel tank was last cleaned I am going to get it done as a precaution and I will have a starting point of clean fuel and filters for a future maintenance regime.
The E.U. say sulphur has to be taken out of marine fuel even though the more you take out the more likely we are to get bugs in the fuel but the ridiculous thing is the more they take out the more biocides we boaters are likely to tip in the tank to counteract the effect of this legislation.
