Grindley Brook

DSCN0893Today was but a short hop from Wrenbury with just one lift bridge today and that mercifully open and through four locks.

We passed the butty Jellicoe, usually paired with the fuel boat Mountbatten which, I believe, used to serve the Banbury area in the past but now plies the Llangollen Canal under the proprietorship of Jon & Hannah.

We have moored up just short of Grindley Brook locks which will be tackled in the morning, much to her delight Joy found a bookshop near the bottom lock.
