Again we just pottered along with the intension to stop for lunch at Fenny Compton, a lot of dredging work was being carried out and much of the available mooring was taken up. A chicken roasting in the oven, couldn’t wait much longer, but we did eventually moor up just after the Fenny Compton Tunnel, which now is actually no longer a tunnel as the top was taken off in 1868 leaving a very deep cutting.
The roast chicken lunch was delicious, but needed some serious afternoon napping to help it digest. We didn’t get much further that day, but before we got underway a dog walker and her beautiful Siberian Husky came passed. The dog’s name was Sky and as he was so handsome and gentle and shared most of our boat name, we had to take his photo.
We soon passed under the first of the lift bridges the style of which is peculiar to The Oxford Canal
