Cropedy south to Banbury Aug 2014

Our Summer Cruise 2014

Day 50 - 7 miles and 10 locks

Readers of the blog will probably realise it's runs behind calendar time - mainly due to getting a decent 'dongle' signal on the move. This day's cruise was on the Sunday of the Cropedy Folk Festival. We had been warned of chaos by moored boats in the village - as it happened our travels down went smoothly with the interest of many different types of boats and people.

There are many smallholdings adjacent to the canal on the offside - a number have wheeled cabins like this photo

A view of the new Cropedy Marina - busy with boaters presumably stopping on for the Festival

Slow tick over passed the long line of moored boats

There were fields and fields of campers - caravans, vans and tents

I couldn't resist this collection of guitars by the village bridge

The well tended Lock Cottage in the village

Another Les Allen Boat from Oldbury

A broken ground paddle - we have only came across a few

Going under the M40

Moored on Banbury Town Moorings
