Abingdon to Reading


There was still a fair bit of a stream on when we left Abingdon, so we found we could put the engine into tickover, and still make good speed on our merry way. Which was very relaxing for both of us. And the journey only took two days. We didn't stop at Wallingford, because it was stuffed full, so we carried on a bit, and camped out in the bushes near Moulsford. Next day, we only had to make a short journey down to Beale park, which again we were very lucky to have all to ourselves.

A baking breezeless journey down through Caversham, to the welcome shade and relief of the lock cut..
