A week-end in the country.

0 Locks, 2 miles. Now moored at Hillmorton bottom lock.

Needing a pump out we headed off to Clifton Cruisers. While there we collected some more mail. We enquired about the diesel only to be told that they were only doing a 60/40 split to simplify the paper work so we declined. If I get stuck I can go over to Tesco's service station where it's 99.9 per litre which in actual fact is cheaper than what boat yards are charging for the propulsion rate. Doesn't make sense to me, I think we might be getting conned somewhere along the line.

After a quiet cruise we winded at the Hillmorton bottom lock and stopped at the water point before moving a hundred yards to our present mooring. We will stay here until Monday morning when we will return to Brownsover to pick up Tracey from the railway station and depending on the mooring situation we may move on up to Newbold.

1586 locks, 3315 ½ miles, 53 Tunnels, 43 swing bridges and 39 lift bridges since Nov 2006
