A dismal day, but not too cold. Before we set off from Braunston this morning I wanted to check the prop as for the last few days we seemed to be travelling a bit slower than normal. After half an hour this lot had come off!

The remains of a pair of trousers and the rope were the main contenders, along with the bits of plastic, stick and weed. Passing Braunston Stop house, with still a bit of mist around.

I needed to buy some new blades for my Stanley knife, which I did at Wharf House Narrowboats below Braunston bottom lock. We shared Braunston locks with a nice crowd of youngsters on a hire boat.

Approaching Norton junction, and our home waters of the Leicester Line.
