Wednesday 4th to Saturday 7th October 2017 from Goring to Claydon.
Breakfast at Pierreponts was a rare treat. Although the restaurant changed hands a year or so ago, the quality has not diminished and breakfast was delicious!
Normally, we have been setting off by 8:00am, but today we started late going through Goring Lock, which, like most of the locks on the Thames now the season is over, was on 'self service'.
We cruised up to Abingdon, where we moored up for the night and in the morning we were greeted by a lovely sunrise that lit up the riverside buildings.
The blacksmith's forge was open, so that we got a chance to look around the forge and talk to the resident blacksmith.
Four days: 60 miles, 36 locks and 28.9 hours.
Trip: 480 miles, 393 locks and 296.0 hours.
