Right down the middle

We pootled off to Weedon this morning and moored by the second aqueduct so that we could have a mooch around the village, buy a paper and amble back to the boat.  The canal is up above the village on a substantial embankment next to the church and on the opposite side of the old church is the railway viaduct, religion in a transport sandwich... After a quick cuppa we moved the quarter of a mile or so on to the waterpoint.  The water pressure was dire and it took two hours to fill the water tanks on MR and Caxton.
After watering we moved on again ahead of the promised rain and moored between Nether Heyford and Bugbrooke. This is really  a pleasant stretch of canal with wide well maintained towpaths and lovely understated and under appreciated Northamptonshire countryside.
