|The short Lapworth link connects the GU and the S on A|
|Lapworth link is in between the two houses on the right.|
We follow on behind NB Celtic Kiwi who kindly lift a paddle after they leave a lock so it is filled when we arrive, until they stop for lunch and we pass them.
|Lots of Barrel roofed cottages along this canal|
At lapworth bottom lock there is a wait for canal staff to arrive to clear a boulder from the canal bed to allow the top gate to close. This lock must be one of the noisiest on the system as the M40 roars overhead.
|FL waits under the M40|
Ten locks done we pull in opposite the Fleur de Lys , Celtic Kiwi's crew pull in behind and we arrange to have dinner in the pub together. Roger and Heather are Aussies in spite of the name on their boat. Pie, pint and good company- my kind of night out.
