Foxton Locks

We are expecting a visit from Keith and Leesa on Sunday so decided that we would moor at the bottom of Foxton Locks for the weekend. The Foxton Locks Inn looks like a good place to eat and there is easy access to the canal by car.

Today's journey was a short uneventful one apart from a minor excursion into the bushes on the offside by me after Foxton swing bridge. Morgana didn't want to behave herself and refused to turn towards the towpath, perhaps she didn't want to pick Ray up!

We did think about taking Morgana to the top of the locks tomorrow but the forecast is for showers so we think we will leave it until Monday.

Today's journey 4.1 miles and 1 swing bridge

So far this year we have travelled 808.5 miles, 635 locks,  53 swing bridges, 23 lift bridges and 28 tunnels

In 2011 we travelled 461.4 miles, 444 locks, 3 swing bridges, 34 lift bridges and 15 tunnels

During 2010 we travelled 740.3 miles, 642 locks, 53 swing bridges, 4 lift bridges and 25 tunnels

Since Ray retired we have travelled 2010.2 miles, 1721 locks, 109 swing bridges, 61 lift bridges and 68 tunnels
