Moved to the country.

2 locks, and 2 miles . Now moored at Denham Deep lock 

We felt that we had been in suburbia long enough and it was time to move on a bit and find a place in the countryside. The weather was clear blue sky but a bit of a nip in the air. After a quick trip into town for some fresh fruit and vegetables we made a slow start up to Denham marina to top up the diesel. Now the temperatures are  dropping we are starting to use more diesel with the Mikuni central heating unit firing up more frequently.

As we knew of a good quiet mooring above Denham deep lock there was no rush and as usual we had the canal to ourselves. This is certainly the best time of the year to enjoy the canals in peace and solitude and what a pleasure to immerse ourselves in the golden glow of Autumn.

810 locks, 1127.5 miles, 33 Tunnels, 39 swing bridges and 19 lift bridges since Nov 2006
