Semington to Devises

Left Semington to wait for our visitors Lisa and Jonathan at Seend Cleeve. Cruised a little further along to Sells Green, where we moored for the night and visited the Three Magpies for dinner. Time to rest before a short distance to the start of Caen Hill locks. We certainly appreciated our additional crew as the return journey of 29 locks were all uphill and the weather was very hot, it took 5 1/2 hours to complete them. Lisa and Jonathan left us in Devises as they were going to visit Bath. We stayed an extra day to visit Devises and the Wadworth Brewery.
