We unexpectedly met up with Dave and Lin at Abingdon. They were our next door but one neighbours at Kings Marina Newark. We knew they were planning a visit to family in Trowbridge but didn’t think we would meet up because of the different routes we were planning to take. It was good to catch up with them.

The old and new entrances to the Wilts & Berks canal


We met Wessex Rose hotel boat that we used to see regularly in Devizes

And a working boat, supplying gas, coal and diesel to boaters.

Wallingford but sadly the space was not long enough.

So on to Cleeve Lock where the charming lock keeper phoned Goring to see if the was a long enough space. There wasn’t, so he offered his mooring. It was an ideal spot and only cost £8.90!

Today Tuesday, we are moored up back in Goring and have already visited the butcher! His “directors” sausages are delicious!
