WEDNESDAY 10TH JUNE 2009
A whole bunch of Jacquie’s girlfriend had threatened us with a visit and tomorrow was to be the day. We knew that Hunton Bridge was easily accessible from the M25 and there were several pubs to choose from. On route from Croxley, we passed through the lovely Cassiobury Park and under the ornamental stone balustraded bridge 164. The Earl of Essex insisted that this be built instead of the usual hump back brick bridge, before granting permission for the canal company to dig its canal though his park. Good man!!
No shortage of moorings at Hunton Bridge, we moored opposite the new development of apartments and houses, and checked out the pubs. The former Kings Head, now the, Italian flavoured, Waterside Inn looked favourite with plenty of parking.
