We moved today to Fenny Stratford, 6.5 miles, 5 locks, 3.5 hours.
I took a walk into Fenny this afternoon to go to the Post Office and found that it had closed down, as have a lot of the shops and some of the takeaway places, although the Napoli Fish & Chip shop is still there – we decided not to have fish & chips from there this time, because although recommended to us last year, is was horrendously greasy and we both felt very sick afterwards. So bangers and mash tonight.
Moving on to Cosgrove tomorrow where we will probably stay for a few days. We have arranged with Blisworth Marina to arrive early next week, a bit earlier than we had planned. Russ will be travelling back from Lincoln to Northwood on Wed next week, and will pick Rog up and then take him to Willowtree to collect the car. It was too good an opportunity to miss, and will save him having to get taxis, trains, underground etc. We have a bit of hanging around to do over the next week as we don’t want to arrive too soon and be stuck in the middle of nowhere with no access to transport.
