What are they, you ask? I'll come to that in a bit. First, we moved from Fenny Compton Wharf after I'd cycled to the Co-op in the village for a paper (and some profiteroles). It was good to be steering the boat again, and we had the lovely Claydon Locks as a bonus. We stopped for lunch and I contemplated repairing a puncture, but decided to swap bikes and carry on lock wheeling using Jan's.
Here is our first Oxford Canal lift bridge. Jan was steering meaning that I could get a rare photo from the bow.
After tea on board (roast chicken followed by apple crunch and custard) we both went for a walk in Cropredy. This is where the title of this post comes in.
One thing you might not have known about Cropredy is that it has a road called "Cup and Saucer". What a strange name! Can another Cup and Saucer exist elsewhere in Britain?
