A lovely clear morning after yesterday's rain. We guided Ygal and Judith down to the junction and showed them the farm shop and how to use the water point.
Just west of Armitage, there used to be a tunnel, but it subsided so much that they decided to cut the top off. It's still very narrow though.
We are going home for an event that we booked months ago - a talk given at the Tallow Chandlers' Hall in the City on the 1922 and 1924 expeditions up Everest. The talk is to be given by Hugh Norton, the son of the leader of the 1924 expedition. Unmissable!
New batteries are living up to expectations, consistently still giving well over 12 volts at 85% capacity, while the old ones were only giving 10 volts at 95%. Hooray!
Today: 10 miles, 2 locks and 5.9 hours.
