Wehey! We made it!

LechladeTravelled 9.47 miles today, and risen through 4 locks.
Radcot, Grafton, Buscot, and St Johns.

"There are no more locks upstream on the River Thames, with Lechlade normally considered to be the end of the navigable river."

Tied up beside the pub for a quick pint, and a shopping run. Then dropped back down below the bridge, where we're currently moored up beside a farmers field, with 100 cows for company. Twisty, Bendy, Windy, Rainy.. for most of the way up here. But I'm glad we did it. Being out in the deepest countryside, with no roads or cars at all, has made it well worth the effort, and the occasional soakings.

    Thanks Alan. With very few other boats about, we almost had the river to ourselves. Guess it would all have been a lot harder with stuff coming round the bends at us.
