CHERTSEY

BOATS, BRIDGES, BOILERS ... IF IT'S GOT RIVETS, I'M RIVETTED
... feminist, atheist, autistic academic and historic narrowboater ...
Likes snooker, beer, tea, rivets and solitude, and is strangely fascinated by the cinema organ.
And there might be something about railways.

Resting in Weybridge

Day 10, Weybridge

Today was a day for a well earned rest. Renfrew left our side at seven to go up the locks at 9.30. Meanwhile we have stayed tied up above Thames lock. The BBC forecast was for a dull but dry day but it actually rained fairly persistently through the morning. We set off for a long walk to the festival site but aborted because of the rain and went into Weybridge instead. A great place if you want to buy a flashy fitted kitchen.

This is where we did some of our earliest boating, on Helyn, and where we worked our very first locks for ourselves.
