Lapworth Visitor Moorings to Saltisford Arm, 8.1 miles, 27 locks, 1 tunnel

Last day of our Autumn cruise.
Last 6 Lapworth locks.

Leaving the Stratford canal via the Lapworth link.

Approaching Kingswood junction and the Grand Union.

We helped another boater rescue a boat that had pulled its mooring pins.
Approaching Shrewley tunnel.

Hatton top lock, we had nb Yonderly join us here to share the Hatton locks.

Sharing locks with nb Yonderly.

Approaching Saltisford Arm.

Hadar now moored in her new mooring at the start of the arm. Some of the advantages of this mooring is that it is straight, does not have a concrete block in it, and we do not have to go to the winding hole to wind, we can come straight in and reverse out. 
Lots to do with the mooring so we have to get cracking.
