Clifton on Dunsmore

Here I am Rune
Distance 6.3 miles
Total 2281 Locks  100 Tunnels
Running total mileage 3302.4 miles 

We didn’t quite make it to Hilmorton  Locks today, but we are close enough (about 1 mile away). We held on at last night’s mooring until about 11.25am for the purpose of getting to the railway bridge under repair by midday when it is supposed to be open to canal traffic to then find that the works are now complete and there is no restriction on the canal at all, we could have set off at our normal time.

The other big milestone we passed today was the 100th passage through a tunnel, it’s just a pity that the tunnel concerned, Newbold, wasn’t a bit more dramatic. At 206 yards I think that I might have gone under longer motorway bridges.

The plan now is to get about a mile out of Braunston tomorrow and then move into the town on Friday to moor up.
