Braunston to Long Itchington

As we left Braunston we had to say goodbye to Paul and Lindsay, nb Teapot. I am sure we will be meeting up with them again soon. We turned at Braunston Junction onto the Oxford & GU, the same stretch we did back in April, only to find a huge queue of boats breasted up, apparently a cow had got stuck in the water and the fire brigade were trying to get it out. Eventually we got to the turning at Napton ‘Wigrams Turn’ and headed towards Warwick. Mooring overnight at Long Itchington.
