Ten Bob Note  

Wednesday 12th September 2007

Location: Adderbury, Oxfordshire, Oxford canal

Today: 6 miles, 2 locks. Total distance: 560 miles.  Total locks: 410

Mild, sunny spells. Good t-mobile GPRS reception here (had 3g yesterday, only GPRS today ??)

We walked into Kings Sutton this morning as mentioned on the previous page.

On return from the village, we pulled the pins and headed south to the closest winding hole so that we could turn around to face the Banbury direction as we will need to return to Banbury for the train station and for water etc.

We are now moored back in almost the same spot as last night. It’s lovely and peaceful here with nice views across the fields.


Thursday 13th

Walked with the dogs into Adderbury, just over 4 miles round trip. The older part of the village, West Adderbury is lovely with lots of old buildings, well worth the visit. Some photos below.

The shop in Adderbury (beside the church) has a butcher’s counter which sells local meats. Picked up some of their pork chops and home made sausages.

Stopping on here for another night or until the water tank needs re-filling.
