This morning Rog was woken up at 6.30 by lots of banging and crashing and loud voices outside our porthole – they were setting up stalls for some kind of market. We were glad that we had decided to move downriver for the night. We untied about 9 am and headed off. The sun was shining, not quite ‘river weather’, but nearly, and the Avon was very pretty. Two locks later (very hard locks, I hasten to add!) and we found a delightful spot just above Stan Clover lock. We settled in for the day and then went for a walk after lunch around Luddington. There were some lovely cottages, a manor house, a village green, a cute little church, and not much else! Back to Stratford tomorrow.
