Wednesday 11th May, 2016 at Brinklow.
We had moored at a very pleasant, quiet spot overnight. It was raining, but not heavily at this point, so we set off fairly early as the forecast was for heavier rain later.
As we approached Hawkesbury Junction, where the Oxford Canal joins the Coventry Canal, we spotted the familiar Kingsground logo on a boat emerging from the junction. It was "Bosley Belle", which we last saw at Crick three years ago. The owners called and waved cheerily as we passed.
At the junction is the Greyhound Pub, much loved by the boating fraternity; in fact recently it was voted "Pub of the Year" by the readers of Canal Boat Magazine. The turn on to the Oxford Canal is 180 degrees and very tight!
At Brinklow, one of our favourite moorings beckoned.
Trip: 59 miles, 21 locks and 35.7 hours.
