Autumn Years negotiates one of the Unique Stratford Canal Bridges
The unusual named Bucket Lock Cottage at Yarningale which is immediately followed by a Iron Aqueduct replacing the original wooden one.
A little later Paul and Leigh on Nb Carapace friends of Graham and Carolann came down from the junction and moored up in front of us. So it was all aboard AY for coffee and biscuits.
Towards evening after a lot of traffic in both directions Nb Meander which had travelled from Stratford and 22 locks found that all the mooring spaces were taken and so had to continue on to find some where to moor for the night.
Later the crews of Nb. Autumn Myst, Nb. Autumn Years, and Nb. Carapace 2 went for a nice meal at the Fleur de Lys pub.
As we crossed the bridge by the lock a lady asked if we were from Autumn Myst and it turned out that she was Angie with husband Dave on narrowboat Lady Esther who were going down the lock on their way to Stratford. Angie makes crocheted Pin covers made from Sainsbury's orange bags, a really great idea.
After our meal we all returned to AM for coffee and a chat.
