Kingswood Junction to Lowsonford

Now said goodbye to all our guests, Sue and Brian left this morning, it was lovely to have them stay and have time catch up with all we have missed whilst we have been away. Set off on our own and took a sharp left towards Stratford, then left again onto the Stratford Canal. It seemed very strange being back on the narrow locks after being used to the wide chambers for so long. We soon got used to them again and after nine of them we moored at Lowsonford to try out the Fleur de Lys, which is famous for its pies.

Glad you all enjoyed the couple of days. We appreciated the extra help on the Hatton flight. But I can't really see you slowing down enough to agree to Casey getting her wish. See you soon xx
