An early start meant we were out of Gloucester lock by 8.45 and we arrived at Upton on Severn by 1.50. A charmimg little town with very helpful and welcoming inhabitants!

Mooring was a little difficult……

I’m pleased to say that we emailed Luke about it and by the time we returned a few says later the pontoon had been repaired. So thank you Luke for alerting your colleagues about it.

The TIC is always our first port of call in the attractive pepper pot building and our attention was drawn to the Britain in Bloom notice and the dog.

We visited the quaint museum with its delightful stewards

Flooding has always been problem in Upton. Some photos in the museum taken in 1947

Interesting before and after photos

Remember these?

Two sets of Morris Dancers that evening. Notice the flood barrier brick with glass top

Just wanting to know why they were dressed in this way. The end of a very nice day.
