Onward and Upwards.

On the 16th November we made it to lock 37 before turning round and heading back for home.

Today it was going to be the day that we made it all the way to the top of the Hatton flight.

Left home at 1 pm and headed off up the flight. 45 minutes later we were at the top.

In the distance St. Mary’s Church. Her town standing tall and proud in the Winter sunshine.

This very attractive and eye catching stainless steel sculpture by Gideon Petersen is in a side pond above Lock 42 on the Grand Union Canal, opposite the British Waterways depot.

The Canal & River Trust buildings and workshops.

Getting closer to the cafe.

Hatton Arms. We have not been in there yet. It over looks the Hatton Flight.

I promised Keith, if we made it to the top of the flight, I would treat him to a cuppa from the cafe. I always keep my promises.

Stunning spot. The cafe was very busy.

The Lock Cottage, looks like it could do with a little TLC.

After a well earned cuppa and rest, it was then time to head downwards and back home.

The afternoon sunshine was descending, as it walked towards dusk and the temperature began to slide, but the walk down hill was a joy. Keith had certainly done well today, but was beginning to feel it as we strolled down hill towards home.
