We are now at Foxton.

We are now moored at Foxton, 9.8miles 12 locks, all ready for the celebrations this coming Saturday, having spent today's jaunt in the company of Pat and Terry on their narrowboat Victoria, who are also at Foxton for Saturday's events.

We are taking part in the Leicestershire & Northamptonshire Union Canal 200th anniversary, Foxton Locks to Market Harborough Basin, Leics. To celebrate its 200th anniversary, the Old Unions Canal Society will be holding a re-enactment of the 1809 opening of the Leicestershire & Northamptonshire Union Canal to Market Harborough. At 10am boats will leave from Foxton Locks, arriving at Market Harborough basin by 11.30am. From there at 12.30pm there will be a parade from the canal basin to the Angel Pub. Hadar is one of the main parade boats, she will behind Vagabond, which is carrying the band, then Vixen the horse boat, followed by Laplander the steam boat and then Hadar. All other boats will follow on behind. It should be a wonderful event, so if you have time to spare, why not come along.

We couldn't get there, so how about a report and did it stay dry.
