Each weekend we have been continuing the journey to slowly return "Sickle" back to "home". Last weekend we had decided to limit our movements, as we knew we would be locked out by restrictions at Calcutt, the first of 4 Grand Union lock flights we can only get through during a restricted opening window.
|Coming up Stockton Locks - no other boats about.|
|"Sextans" - Sister to "Sickle", but now with 10 feet added.|
|On to the shared Oxford Canal - Wigram's Turn behind.|
|"Sickle" gets a tow up the Braunston locks.|
|Undoubtedly the most disturbing image of the day!|
|Don't believe this sign if you want "provisions" or "essentials"!|
