Heyford to Kidlington

Judy & I came up to Upper Heyford to take Constance down towards Oxford. As you can see we enjoyed some lovely weather. We also had to contend with storm Katie, but by then we were hove-to at Kidlington.
Allen's Lock - Upper Heyford

The cattle had come into the canal to take a drink
 We stopped at Pigeons Lock for lunch and there was a 'tap-tap' on the door. David had cycled up from his home in Oxford to join us. Together we moved south.
Now with two lock operators, down on to the Cherwell
The Cherwell was very well behaved considering the amount of rain we have had through March. Then through Thrupp. With crew the electric lift bridge is easy. We moored up at Kidlington where we could catch buses into and out of Oxford. We had a lovely weekend with David.
