This morning we have finished Heartbreak Hill – another 14 locks. They didn’t seem any where near as difficult as yesterday’s, being as it is a cloudy and cool day today. So nothing else to report. We are now moored a little to the west of Wheelock, just past bridge 157, in almost exactly the same spot, give or take half a boat’s length, as we moored 3 years and one month ago!

Not much has changed, just the trees and bushes are much larger, and the addition of gravel to towpath. The most obvious change is the distinct lack of mowing on C & RT’s part which is something we have noticed everywhere this year.
4.8 miles and 14 locks
