Napton to Cropready to Banbury (Plus Pic Catchup)

Wednesday 8/6/2011
Miles 4 Locks 3
We arrived in Banbury at 9.0 am this morning after a quick run down from Cropready. Each of the three locks was full and the top gates were open so we were able to just sail in, close the gate and top paddles and start down. Last time we were in Banbury I posted a picture of the Lady on th White Horse. This time you get the Cross itself.

Napton to Cropready
Miles 15.7 Locks 18
A day dominated by the windy top level of the southern Oxford Canal summit. At least the weather was fine for the rise up the Napton locks but it the turned into instant heavy showers all the way down to Cropready. The evening is being spent in Glorious sunshine doing nothing.
