Today I have managed to get as far as Northbrook Lock. Earlier this afternoon Sarah called and said to look out for the willow at Bridge 210. Apparently Mark had heard it crack as he passed and said it is going to come down today. Yeah! yeah!
I arrived at Allen’s Lock at the same time as Chris and Joy who were just returning from the shops. I stopped for a cup of tea. Can you believe they had just got back from the shops and had NO cake! It’s a scandal!!!
I stayed for an hour. When I stopped at Heyford I heard that the tree had in deed fallen across the canal. Had I not stopped at the Wren’s boat for tea & no cake it may well have fallen on me.
