Hot, hot hot again!
1 mile 16 locks
We walked up to the campsite to collect our granddaughters to take them out of Nik & Paul’s way whilst they packed up the tent. They then drove to the C&RT car park at the top of the locks, walked down to join us and we started our ascent.
It took us about 2 1/4 hours to do the 16 locks in scroching heat. There wasn’t anyone to share with so we went all the way up on our own, and turning all but two of the locks as we were following two hire boats up.
We stopped by the cafe and all had an ice-cream to celebrate, then they left for home and we chilled out in the evening with a pleasant walk.
