Funny looking Horse’s
With Crofton Pumping station still closed we pulled pins and continued on our journey West. Maybe on our way back this way it will be open.
There are some funny looking Horses in these parts.
At the locks Hamish likes to chill out in the shade.
We are now approaching the Summit of The Kennet and Avon Canal and this is what can happen when you moor in a short pound between locks. We met a Canal and River Trust worker on the Summit and he said that they are having problems with their pumps and are struggling to keep levels up.
Following Nb Oakfield through The Bruce tunnel on the Summit of the K&A Canal.
At the other side of the Bruce tunnel you pass Burbage Wharf and the crane which was fully restored in 2010.
There were loads of men with Anoraks littering the towpath with cameras. It turned out that there was a famous steam train travelling on the main line. It was a black one !
Oh look !!! A water pumping station with loads of pump parts scattered all over the site..Reminds me of a life long ago !!!!!!
There's chilling while cruising and then there's chilling while cruising..Now that's got me thinking!
We are now moored at Honey Street in The Vale of Pewsey under a funny looking horse. With The Barge Public House next to our mooring i suspect that we will be making a visit very shortly…
