Kennet & Avon

Had a few challenges today as we turned off The Thames onto the Kennet & Avon canal. The current was quite strong as we approached Reading town centre, to pass the Oracle shopping centre we had to proceed under traffic light control due to the narrow channel and the even stronger current. Only then to be faced with an open weir on one side and the lock on the other. Moored in open countryside again, enjoying the weather and having yet another bbq in April.

Southcote Lock, another 103 locks to Bristol, then back again
