Today we turned from the Oxford Canal onto the Grand Union, and thus began to retrace our steps home. We were last in Braunston exactly two months ago, in the sweltering heat of July. Today's not been bad either, but definitely not as warm.
The spire of Braunston Church is a landmark familiar to most boaters, I would think.
Also coming down the locks as we were going up were a couple of CRT work boats. This one had been away for repair for nearly a year and was returning to Oxford. It seems to be shipping rather a lot of water front left.
Stoke Bruerne tomorrow, probably.
