Braunston To Norton Junction. 6 Locks and 1 Tunnel.

Throbbing Diesel, Turning screw....we are on the move again!

Heading from the organised chaos that is Braunston,

We were soon through the first of the six locks for today.

Bright, breezy but beautiful.

Still lots and lots of water through here, getting the top gates open when it is like this can be a bit of a problem........Well........for one of us anyway.

The works at the tunnel mouth are far from over though, they are putting in drainage along the towpath here. This was a quagmire before so this should make a lot of difference when its finished.

The entrance to the tunnel still has a long way to go before it is back to normal.

I think you could just squeeze a Wide Beamer through here at the moment, if you were brave, very brave.

I love the High Tec signage at the other end.

Well.............we are at Norton Junction and we now have something called Broadband, this is a strange phenomenon that seems to make the Internet work properly.
Using this new found technology we have ordered supplies and victuals from a certain Tesco's who have promised faithfully to deliver same in a horseless carriage by the morn.

One day Thomas, one day!

Until next time......................................
