Braunston blog


Let's see if I can remember how to do this...

Amazingly, this was my tenth consecutive year at Braunston - and even more incredibly, my sixth year there with Chertsey. Let's just check: 2006, 2007 - by car; 2008, 2009 - on Warrior; 2010, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 - on Chertsey. My goodness.

It was a lovely weekend, with the weather especially good on the Saturday. I don't know how many boats attended, but it didn't strike me as overly crowded this year. There was a good public turnout on the Saturday, although rain in the morning made Sunday quieter. We spent our time as usual, buying stuff, chatting, and drinking beer. Jim had found us a good spot on the towpath, in what has become a favourite place for us, especially now with Rocky, just beyond Butcher's Bridge. I have hardly taken any photos - and I know I haven't blogged about  our journey to Braunston, now the work we've done on Chertsey prior to it. I can't promise to keep it up now either... But watch this space and I'll do my best.

  1. Chatting to Mr Whitby as he came down Glascote Locks today he reckoned 76 boats attended.

    I would have liked to have gone but we were busy. (The first Braunston gathering I've missed for a few years).
