Moved on today albeit not in the promised sunshine. However apart from a very small amount of drizzle it was OK, if somewhat gloomy. Between here and Newbury there is not a lot of habitation so 4 hours of almost solitude. We saw no boats at all until the last two locks. At the first of these we were held up slightly as BW were having to re-water the following pound....someone had left the paddles open at both ends of a lock.........
So company for the last two locks and now we have stopped in Kintbury. We shall stay here for the weekend...sussed out two of the pubs for our Sunday lunch, only one of which does food, but this evening we will have a look at the third one. There are all facilities for Petroc and the Church has a service so we have all our requirements for the weekend.
Tomorrow we plan to walk into Hungerford (3 miles)to see the possibilities for leaving Petroc for the night next Tuesday when we have to be away for the night. Depending on our energy levels we shall either walk back or maybe try out our new bus passes. There is also a station here so the possibilities are endless!!
