Never eventuated.

0 locks and 7 ½ miles. Now moored at Stowehill

Last nights storm fizzled out not long after I took the satellite dish down. This morning was nice and fine but a very icy wind. As the weather was supposed to turn bad later this afternoon we decided to make the most of it and move on. First stop was Gayton Junction for water and rubbish. The wind was coming in from the wrong angle making it a bit tricky reversing onto the services mooring but we got there.

On the way we had a look at the new  British Waterways Blisworth Marina and the Heyfords Fields Marina. The latter is very nicely laid out and they are just put the finishing touches to the landscaping. Both marina's are only half full so there appears to be plenty of berth's available for anybody that's interested. There is certainly a lot less boats moored along the towpath in the area now.

New Heyford Fields Marina - more upmarket with lovely surroundings

As we headed North we could see that we were heading into bad weather but the rain held off until after we arrived at Stowehill and got ourselves settled. Dot has now organised a Tesco delivery for the morning as we are very close to bridge 26 and the main road.
