Ten Bob Note
Quite a busy day today, well, by our standards it was.
Worked our way up through the Hanwell flight, every lock being against us because a boat had passed earlier heading in the same direction as us. Still, the weather was nice and it was a very pleasant journey to Uxbridge.
Still not a lot of boats about, looks like the canals down this neck of the woods are just not as popular as the canals further north. We are certainly not complaining about the lack of boats and no queues at the locks!!
It’s nice to be back north of Uxbridge, lovely around here.
Passed Richard on a loaded nb Arundel just north of Cowley, photo below.
The hedgerows are full of Elderberries and Blackberries this year, must pick some and have a go at making something with them……

3 bridges near top of hanwell flight. Road over canal over rail
Note the extra wide walkway across the lock gates, much safer than the usual narrow ones.
