Summer Cruise – Day 8
Fortunately our target was not far away. Our first lock at Fenny Stratford has just a 1’ 1” rise so hardly worth counting, but interesting with its hand operated swing bridge over it.
This was followed by Stoke Hammond Lock, then the Soulbury Three (where the lockkeeper helped us through) and finally Leighton Lock; we shared all but the last with a guy single handing on Samantha, a 70 footer, having left him at the well recommended (by him) Globe Inn, while we took our brunch on board.
We arrived at at Tesco, Leighton Linslade by 4pm, where I promptly pulled a muscle in my shoulder while mooring up on the Stop & Shop 2 hour moorings, so the girls went shopping while I rested up then moved a couple of hundred yards onto the 14 day Visitor Moorings.
