Braunston

Following a nice weekend moored by the golf course, we set off for Braunston. Approaching Hillmorton is always greeted by the radio aerials. My uncle worked there maintaining the masts, which lead to his being a rock climber and mountaineer.

The first sighting of Braunston church is always a welcoming sight for us, and the home waters of the Grand Union.
