Pinkhill to Chimney

I volunteered (was sent) to the butcher in Eynsham, we have used him before and his meat was very good. It's a walk of just under an hour to get there through some sheep fields and footpaths. After the showery morning we just had I took my rain coat in a day sack just in case.

When I arrived the damn place was shut, I took some photographic evidence in case I got accused of spending the time in the Talbot Inn. Still it was a pleasant walk and the rain stayed away until I got back aboard.




Before we moved on this morning this chap came along to raise his pots.

I thought the pots were kept to the side of the channel but this lad winched a line of them up from the centre, he knew what he was doing as they all had a good catch in all of them 

New Bridge... well it was in the 13C when it had  51 arches now down to 12
