We pulled pins from Fenny Stratford at 09.45. A bit late but as Carolyn keeps reminding me we are now slowing down for Winter.Its good to see as we travel around the canal system that a lot of the old signs are still retained.
The lock at Fenny with the bridge in the middle of it. We were told by one of the local boaters that a few weeks ago a group of drunken Leeds United supporters stopped off at The Red Lion on their way to the game against MK Dons who's ground is just up the road, they then got totally pie-eyed and started jumping up and down on the bridge while singing and shouting. The result being that the bridge came off its centre bearing and was left with one side touching the water. The bridge was then out of action for a short time until it could be put back in place.. PS Leeds won the game 2-1…
Such a shame. Its never good to see a boat looking like this.Luckily there was nobody on-board at the time of the fire .That reminds me to check our smoke alarms. On Inca we have 2 smoke alarms ,3 fire extinguishers ,a fire blanket and 2 Carbon monoxide alarms.So hopefully we should be safe enough.
Only a short cruise today and we reach another one of our favourite moorings in this area. We are just below Stoke Hammond lock.Although there is a bit of road noise its peaceful enough and we will have a day or two here before moving on again
