Croxley Green

3 locks, and 2 miles . Now moored at Croxley Green

Even though we were on a good mooring it was time to move on and the weather was in our favour. It didn't take us long to reach Croxley Green but the problem was finding a mooring that was remotely deep enough for us to get ashore. We had tried below Common Moor lock without success so we went up through the lock only to find the situation not much better. Eventually we managed to moor up with the hull firmly aground within a foot of the bank. It would be nice to see BW putting as much effort into dredging as they seem to be doing on towpath maintenance. We have not seen any dredging being undertaken but people have told us that BW just concentrate on the navigation channel with no regard to being able to moor up along the towpath.

Over the last year we have found so many places along various towpaths that would make great moorings if only you could get close to the bank.

How about it BW, more dredging and less towpath work after all it is the boaters that pay majority of your income, not the walkers and cyclists?

818 locks, 1134.5 miles, 33 Tunnels, 39 swing bridges and 19 lift bridges since Nov 2006
