To Banbury Lane (24 March)

We left Yardley around midday and travelled up the Stoke Bruerne flight with Ray & Liz, and Magnus III the mastiff, from Dreamweaver. Ray & Liz moor close to us at Kingfisher marina but this was the first time we shared locks with them. As expected the flight was quiet. Dreamweaver left us moor in the Long Pound.

At the top of flight we found that the restaurant by the lock that used to called Bruernes' Lock is in the process of conversion to the "Spice of Bruerne", an Indian cuisine.

In the strong winds they were having difficulty erecting the new sign.

We had a rapid and uneventful trip through Blisworth tunnel and moored up just before Banbury Lane. No internet access - hence the late post.
