Stratford upon Avon

On the Sunday (August 21st) we left Evesham, again with NB Penny in bright sunshine. The rowing club were quite active with lots of scullers. We had a glorious day’s boating but it was quite late when we finally got to Stratford.

Around George Billington Lock I saw two kingfishers. One was chasing the other which had the fish.

We stopped for lunch on the visitor moorings at Bidford-on-Avon. It was busy with families parked up by the river enjoying the weather and picnics.

After lunch the weather continued bright and sunny and we enjoyed some of the particularly fine views along the river near Welford.
Stratford was busy and the Bancroft Basin moorings were fully occupied. We did, however, find some excellent moorings just below the chain ferry.
