Crick to Braunston Top Lock

Braunston Top Lock

We set off from Crick with the intention to meet up with John and Caroline on “Vanyar” to go down Watford locks. They were moored just the other side of the bridge, opposite ABNB Narrowboats. They were almost ready to set off as we passed by them. We got to Watford locks and pulled in to the sanitary station, emptied out and topped up. As we were doing this, Vanyar arrived so we helped them down the first lock, and followed on behind. Workmen were busy tarmacking the towpath from the Motorway bridge above the locks to end of the moorings at the bottom of the locks.

Proper tarmac, not like the loose gravel that was used at Foxton. John and Caroline pulled in at the bottom of the locks to take on water, so we passed them again and headed for Braunston, where we both moored up above the top lock, ready to descend the flight together tomorrow morning.
