Norton Junction

Here Caxton shares one of the Braunston double locks with Nb. Matilda Rose. We had moored between lock two and three overnight so this morning saw us working our way through the remaining four locks before entering the Braunston tunnel. There is no towpath through the tunnel, which is over a mile long so Jill and I, together with the four dogs, followed the horse trail over the top of the hill and rejoined Joe and Graham on the other side. The condition of the towpath along this stretch of the Grand Union (GU)is pretty poor as you move away from the vicinity of the tunnel entrance so we pressed on Norton Junction which is the start of the Leicester arm of the GU.

Here are Caxton and Matilda Rose heading away from Braunston Tunnel.
