And so the rain continues in a soggy day in Bradford on Avon. It was forecast so I can’t be surprised, but it would be nice if the rain would start to abate a bit. Looking at the stoppages further up the canal it seems that the continuing wet weather is wreaking havoc on the canal between Reading and Newbury, in fact the Canal and River Trust website doesn’t really recommend going further than Wooton Rivers due to the high flow levels. At least here the canal level remains fairly constant (up and down by probably 12 inches).
There isn’t really much to report since we have pretty much covered most of what is available along this section of canal and we are starting to look forward to seeing different bit of canal again, hopefully from next month if the flooding abates. Due to return back to Torquay on 5th February to get to a dental appointment as one of my teeth has chipped, in order to do this will be hiring a car from Bath so need to be moored somewhere convenient to get to Bath on that date.
