About our boat

We acquired our Narrowboat in January 2010 and are looking forward to many cruises around the network.

Somerton Deep

Set off quite late this morning before stopping at Aynho Wharf, very pleasant service. We are just going to  have a gentle meander today.  We had heard there were cues of up to 6 boats yesterday waiting to go through Somerton Deep Lock, but we were lucky today there were only 2 ahead of us.  It is reputed to be one of the deepest locks on the system.  12 feet down into the dark, damp chamber.

We continued cruising most of the afternoon and moored for the evening just past Enslow Bridge.
