Looking back from Heyford Common Lock

Saturday 7th August,

The canal continues on its winding way, following roughly the line of the River Cherwell. The countryside bordering the cut is a occasionally tree lined interspersed with wide open fields. Noticeably, the towpath here is on a poor state and even non existent state.

We haven't travelled far today, 6 miles and 3 locks, but a couple of boats have told us that Banbury is very crowded due to some sort of Tom Rolt celebration so we may have a great deal of trouble finding a mooring there. Also there is also a folk music festival at Cropredy which is attended by a lot boats. We've seen a lot of boaters who definitely look like they are refugees from a folk festival.

We are now moored up at Aynho Wharf and will make a decision tomorrow whether to carry on to Banbury or wait until Monday.
