Sightseeing in Stratford

Still moored at Bancroft Basin, Stratford-Upon-Avon .

Although the weather was fine it was still a bit on the chilly side with a maximum temperature of about 11 deg C. We wandered up this street and down that one, soaking up the historic character that makes this town what it is. We walked past Shakespeare's birthplace but didn't go in as a couple of coach load's of tourist's were being ushered through the entrance foyer and it was rather crowded.

This afternoon 2 narrowboats came up through the basin lock from the river Avon so the water level must have dropped allowing boats to navigate the river again but it won't alter our plans to head back to Braunston via Napton junction and out onto the Fen's after the Easter week-end.
