We set off at 5.30 and reached the bottom of Aston locks at 0800, we reached the top lock at 9.30 and began Farmers Locks at 1000. We finally reached the top lock at 1145 and went around to The Distillery (Fiddle and Bone)(Sherborne Wharf) for diesel and a pumpout.
David put the boat into reverse to get it away from the towpath and the clutch cable broke! We managed to get the boat back under St Vincent's Bridge and moored up to await Richard to come and fix it for us.
So at 2.30 we eventually moored up at our pontoon in Gas Street. Knackered and happy to be back home.
A decopaged fawn. Matted onto lilac and pink card and fixed onto patterned paper before gluing it onto a white card base with pink flowers for decoration.
