South Oxford Canal.

Since leaving the Thames we have pootled to the end of the South Oxford canal, been along this beauty of a canal so often there is not a lot more I can write about it. As this is our diary a few pictures will do.

The canal shares a stretch of water with the river Cherwell between Shipton Weir lock and Bakers lock.


Conditions were normal.

Pigeon lock.

Dashwood lock.

Heyford Common lock.



Cropredy lock bridge( canoes take a short cut)

Clocks go back this month!
Sue was helping at the lock while I waited to take FL into one of the Claydon locks,  Two ladies from a hire crew walking past to the next lock commentated "We have decided that your wife is the nicest person we have met on the canal".

Adkins lock



Bridge 100 (unnamed we call it Skinny bridge)


Maybe a blogger first - two together.
