To Bradford upon Avon

Nik Philips kindly picked us up in his van and ran us down from Eynsham to Bradford upon Avon, where we were to collect two broad beam boats. I worked with Nik’s partner Gemma last year, and they are giving Anglo Welsh a hand, to bring one of these two boats back to the base on the Thames above Oxford. Nik and Gemma have commitments over the weekend, so Paul and I are getting the boats ready and taking them single handed to a pub near the bottom of the Devizes flight of locks.After grabbing a bit of shopping from nearby Sainsbury’s and some oil for one of the engines, Paul and I set off. We only cruised a couple of hours and moored up at the bottom of a flight of locks at Semington.
