We moved a short distance closer to Bath and moored at Darlington Wharf

The towpath provides an easy walk by Sydney Gardens and the Station to the city centre Some interesting sights en route

Decorative chimney
Lovely view of the city
Bottom lock is very deep and leaving the lock you join the River Avon

We caught the university bus (and felt very old) to visit Claverton Manor the American Museum. A beautiful setting, newly developed gardens (we were told 2 million had been spent on them) and interesting museum The patchwork quilts are stunning and inspiring.
