Kilby Bridge to Foxton

After yesterdays 14 locks and 8 hours cruising we had an early night!  This morning we walked into Wigston to pick up a few items we needed and then carried on towards Foxton.

After 6 hours and 12 locks today, we have moored at the bottom of Foxton locks on the Market Harborough Arm ready to go up the flight in the morning.  James tried out the weed hatch for the second time (string, dish cloth and a boot lace!) – it took Doug to say “there’s a terrible vibration inside the boat, you’ve got something round the prop!”  It rained for part of the afternoon after being very windy all morning.  Anyway a quick wipe down and ‘Chance’ is as good as ever.
