Bradford-on-Avon

Over the last week or so Constance moved from Hilperton to a point just east of the marina on the Trowbridge road (Widbrook). For some reason there is a 48 hour mooring pretty much in the middle of nowhere. The weather was good and with a good wooden edge to the canal I was able to treat, prime and undercoat the starboard gunwale/walkway. Eventually this will have some non-slip paint. Nearby there were a pair of swans who had built a beautiful nest, it was almost perfectly round. Let's hope they will soon be proud parents.
We are now moored up behind the Bradford-on-Avon Tithe Barn for a few days. We have been to BoA before and like it there. Just by the Tithe Barn there is an ice-cream van.
We walked from the Tithe Barn up to the weir at Avoncliff. You cannot see the aqueduct but it is just behind the trees.
On the way back we passed this bit if graffiti - it says it all really!
Let's hope we have some good weather for the forthcoming Bank Holiday weekend!
