Waterways record ????
This is the water point at the bottom of the Napton flight of locks on the South Oxford canal. This boat has been moored on the water point for over 7 weeks . A Canal and River Trust employee told us that the owner tried to go up the lock flight , but got stuck in the second lock up due to the lock being a bit narrow and also his boat being old and her sides had spread. He managed to reverse out of the lock, then back through the bottom lock and on to the waterpoint I don't understand why the boat has not been moved after all this time ,even if it was just pulled 10 yards back around the corner and on to the moorings. I wonder if this is a new record for a boat overstaying on a water point ?.
