Near Adderbury Wharf

Friday 17 August

Unlike yesterday, when we got caught in showers, today despite the forecast we escaped all rain. We had hoped to pick up fuel and get a pump-out at Heyford Wharf but it was their change over day for the hire fleet and they couldn't help us.

We had a good days cruising. Stopped for lunch at Somerton. The moorings overlooking the meadow take some beating anywhere on the canal system. The lock house at Somerton Deep Lock appears to have been sold. We found this out from the owners who were returning home with their shopping via small boat. Let's hope the new owners look after the house like the present owners. It is certainly a credit to them.

We passed Anyho Wharf and the weir lock and moored up just above Nell's Bridge Lock, Adderbury.
