We left Stoke Bruerne on Good Friday, working our way down through the seven locks to the service point where we watered etc. before moving out into the countryside for a lunchtime stop at Thrupp Wharf. We had been told that the Navigation Inn was well worth a visit so how could we ignore that advice? This is a Pub that focuses on food and the menu was quite extensive if a little dear but surprisingly, it was dog friendly! After a quick pint we moved on to Cosgrove and planted ourselves on the 48hr visitor moorings in the heart of the village. We moved out yesterday onto 14 day moorings just by the aqueduct which crosses the River Great Ouse.

This chap is walked past our boat each day though Floyd is less than happy about him..
Our current mooring
Miles and miles of footpaths to enjoy and almost all in excellent condition. This is an area that HAS opened up the Countryside to us all and it is VERY much appreciated, thank you Milton Keynes!
