We spent a lovely weekend in Banbury, but today was the day we had to leave and head back from whence we came.
Before we could head back we needed to wind, so we I walked ahead and set the lift bridge and then the lock.
As you can see from the photograph it was a beautiful morning.
Just outside of Banbury are the Tramway Moorings, which are for permit holders only. Just after those moorings is the winding hole. Having winded we then headed back into Banbury.
Back up through the lock and under the lift bridge, before waving goodbye to Banbury.
Sovereign Wharf is closed as far as the services are concerned at the moment. The notice does not say why, so if you need diesel or gas you cannot buy it there.
We also waved goodbye to Grimsbury Arm as well.
It was up the locks and back into Cropredy where we moored up below the shop for lunch. We had no radio signal and no signal for the laptop, so we decided we would move after I had cooked lunch.
With lunch done, we then moved above the lock, which is where we will be for the rest of the day. It was lovely to see Mike and Marion on Narrowboat Duxllandyn. They had been in the Saltisford Arm and I got nattering to Marion whilst doing the washing.
