We pulled pins at 09.00 from our mooring before Gayton and after about 10 minutes of cruising we arrived at the Junction and with the services empty we decided to do a quick top up and drop off. What a difference these services are to the ones in Braunston , they are clean, everything was working, well looked after and a pleasure to use . I did e-mail a complaint to Canal & river Trust regarding their facilities at Braunston ,but as yet I have not received a reply.
Not long after Gayton junction you pass through the village of Blisworth and then after a short distance its into the 3076 yards (2800 meters) of Blisworth tunnel. A lot of boaters don't seem to like tunnels ,but I love them . Especially this one as its soaking wet and has a good Ghost story attached to it ,and you just can’t beat a good old tunnel selfie.
