There are 10 miles of level water between Claydon and Marston Doles on the Oxford Canal. But there is only 5 miles between the two places! Such is the way it follows the contours with many bends and turns. It is very shallow making the boat slow and unresponsive. The water is always brown with churned up sediment. This is the summit level and I wonder where all the water is coming from. We had passed the reservoir but no water was being fed from it.
Stopped near Nimrod Bridge 108 and fed the baby ducks.
