10 locks by 10.10

Tuesday 10th June

Now at Wooton Rivers. Early start today, getting better at it!

6 miles, 13 locks and one tunnel. After the 10th lock we reached the summit so it is downhill all the way to Bristol now. The tunnel at the summit is only 500 metres and was very well kept, no nasty drips as we went through. We have moored at Wooten Rivers just above lock 108. Glorious weather again, but luckily some cloud this morning so we were not overheated as we (Geoff) worked the locks. Another lunchtime trip to the local hostelry ...........will we never stop enjoying ourselves........we may as the forecast is for this lovely weather to end. The village here is full of thatched roofs and the picture shows one of them.
