Essential Maintenance?
After our day off yesterday we left Banbury this morning with the hope of passing through the locks at Claydon before they are chained up for the night.  The Oxford Canal is so short of water that the locks at either end of the summit pound are only open form 10am to 2pm each day.

With the shortage of water so critical it was good to see that BW can spare two men and a boat for sweeping around the lock at Cropredy rather than such frivolous activities as repairing leaky lock gates which look like Niagara Falls
