Well, we got there, turned round...
...and came back

Someone at one of the locks said "It's not what you think, you'll be disappointed" He was right, there's nothing there. I was expecting a lock keeper at least, but nothing. I must admit the houses that backed onto the canal were quite interesting in design and construction. That's about all I can say. We headed back doing everything in reverse what we did earlier. The weather deteriorated as the day went on and at Shipton weir lock, the heavens just opened for ten minuets, wet eveybody through the sun came out. We plodded our way to Lower Heyford and tied up for the night and watched a DVD containing a 1952 film of the Oxford canal. The film is by Ralph Lee when took Stentor around the country, very good viewing.
