Banbury to Lower Heyford

A very pleasant couple of days were spent in Banbury. Judy was able to browse the shops in the Castle Quay shopping centre whilst I was able to explore all the little back and side streets of which Banbury has plenty.
It gets a bit tight going through Banbury shopping ventre

Past the Castle Quay entrance

Under the museum bridge with Tooley's behind

Not too many watching the lift bridge operating

Waiting for the lock to become free
 As we leave Banbury we are again out in the rural Oxfordshire countryside.
The next lift bridge

A different style of bridge

The M40 again

Nell bridge from the lock
 Nell Bridge was the crossing point of the busy A41
It's a bit tight in here!
 But they had to widen it a bit, so they built the A41 bridge over and to the side of the 1787 bridge.

The old and the new Nell Bridge

The Cherwell Weir

Aynho Weir Lock

Somerton Deep Lock

All 12' 6" of it!

A lovely peaceful spot just above Upper Heyford Lock

Another narrow bridge at Upper Heyford

Now moored at Lower Heyford
