Oxford to Lower Heyford

The weather was set fair for the day. Alison had not been on this canal before so we decided to motor northwards for a bit. We left our lovely mooring adjacent to Hythe Bridge Street.

About as close to Oxford city centre as you can get!
Out of Oxford along past all of the 'Agenda 21' moorings, up through Duke's Lock and on to Kidlington.
Bridge 228 - Yarnton Road Bridge

Yarnton Road Bridge (228) is notoriously low. I always untie the wheelbarrow just in case it hits the underside of the bridge. This time we were OK because we had just filled with water and the bow was low in the water. We passed through Thrupp and Shipton-on-Cherwell.

Alison had not seen one of these before.
