Banbury, Oxford Canal

Left at 0500 and were going down through Cropredy Lock as the church clock chimed seven.

The lock cottage had this board fixed on their fence.

The moorings were packed, with boats doubled moored up by the lock.

We passed the empty lock cottage at Little Bourne Lock. It was looking pretty sorry for itself, but the sign on the side says that it is now owned by local boaters. So maybe something good will come of it.

Banbury was reached by 0900 and we slipped into an empty mooring for shopping and a trip to the Vodafone shop to see if the Internet dongle was working properly as we've not been getting a signal for days. Vodafone confirmed that everything was OK, but we still couldn't get a signal on the boat - just 500 yards from the shop!
I think this card shows a picture of Somerton Deep Lock.
The photo is matted onto silver, white and yellow card. Behind that is a panel of blue and silver matted card.
The base card is white and is finished off with a stick-on fluttery dragonfly.
