Swindon to Bratch Locks

It seemed busier than usual as we left Swindon and had a short wait at Botterham staircase locks. Then on to Bratch locks, which we timed just right. Although they look like a staircase they are in fact three separate locks very close together with no passing once the flight has started, luckily there is a friendly lock-keeper on hand to supervise.
