Ten Bob Note

 
 

Tuesday 20th May 2008

Location: Hungerford, Berkshire, Kennet & Avon

Today: 5 miles, 10 locks. Total distance: 1348 miles.  Total locks: 928

Pulled the pins around 08:00 and headed on to Hungerford. Moored up at the town 48 hour visitor’s moorings as we don’t expect to stay here for more than one or two nights.

Will probably visit the Indian restaurant that we visited the last time we were here as the food was good.

Some of the locks and swing bridges that we passed through this morning are in a bit of a state and in need of some TLC. The Hungerford swing bridge is very rickety and apparently was supposed to be replaced last winter.

It’s nice to have hone communications and internet access again. We couldn’t get any reception at all until about a mile or so west of Hungerford.

Current Mooring

The canal is lovely at this time of year
