Above King’s Lock

We are now on the Thames. Even though we are heading for Lechlade we started off going downstream. Our usual early start saw us at Osney Lock before 8 o’clock, we also passed through Iffey Lock before the lock keeper was on duty. So is wasnt until Sandford that we had to pay our Thames licence. The weather was alternately sunny and rainy most of the day. We stopped at Abingdon for a full English breakfast and a pop to Waitrose, then back upstream. The town council at Abingdon provide some very good, free moorings,
At Iffey lock someone had put this hand made sign

After a bit of looking we managed to find a mooring against a farmer’s field just above King’s lock
