Back up that hill
Pulling pins the next morning at 07.30 from Seend locks we head towards the 29 locks at Devizes. With Curly on the tiller and now learning to steer Inca we make good time and get to the bottom Foxhanger lock at 09.45.
We did get a bit of help from a couple of volunteer lockies on a few of the locks.
After a walk into the town and a bit of shopping it was off to good old Wetherspoons for lunch.
We passed this sign on a corner..
There are plenty of bank repairs going on and many that have been completed . Its just a bit of a shame a lot more effort cant be put into the lack and quality of visitor moorings on this canal.
We would have liked to have picked up a mooring at All Cannings , but we have never seen so many boats on a stretch of canal near a village and mooring was just impossible. It was then on to Honey Street and the situation was not much better there.
Luckily we have just managed to pick up a mooring at Pewsey. So with Curly on her way back home soon this will do for a day or so to enable her to be picked up
