Ancient and modern at Hawkesbury Junction

As we came off the Coventry Canal onto the Oxford Canal at Hawkesbury Junction we were being followed by steamer Laplander (contemporaneous blog post here). While we were waiting for the stop lock the boy on Laplander whipped out a radio controlled speedboat and treated us to a spot of high speed antics.

I expect it was the fastest motorised vessel that patch of water had ever seen.
