Found some expensive bread n milk, oil and filter at the boat yard. Oxford Narrowboats were very busy on their turn round day with lots of boats waiting for families to take them away for their holiday on the waterways. They are looking for an engineer so just hope that they all get back later with no problems.
It was a noisy night with that railway just over the hedge so we turned round next day and got water before heading north. A boat called No Problem arrived just as we had finished. They had met Sue n Vic on the Kennet and Avon canal. Two No Problem’s on the same canal! Pity that there are really so many problems on that canal with many boaters reporting that the canal is ‘falling apart’ with lack of maintenance and consequently lack of water due to leakage. Lack of rain does not help either. The latest problem is the actual closure of the Leeds and Liverpool canal due to lack of water we are told.
