Gloucester to Frampton on Severn

Set off on to the Gloucester and Sharpness canal, passed through several swing bridges which are all operated by BW keepers, some we were able to pass under and others we had to wait to be opened under a red and green light system. Although the canal is relatively straight the countryside opens up with wide views of the Cotswolds on one side and the Forest of Dean on the other.
