Grand-daughter Alice is back with her friend Ruth for a few days ..
The last time we came this way in August 2009 construction of this marina was just starting, and there were very nice moorings along this stretch of towpath which are sadly no longer there.
The pound (stretch of water ‘impounded’ between two locks) was very low by this time as boats left yesterday's canal festival at Leighton Buzzard and we were really struggling so we pulled over at Bridge 118 at lunch time, we’d see if the situation improved later on...
... which it did. At about 4pm the water level was considerably higher and we moved up to moor for the night below Slapton Lock ready for an early start in the morning.
