Journey North 8: Stoke Bruerne – Fenny Stratford 

17 miles, 8 locks

This morning I had to work from 9am to 1pm (remotely so I just need the internet) and the signal in Stoke Bruerne was quite poor so we set off down the flight at 7:30am in order to be at the bottom by 9am. We were grateful for Andrew’s help with this and made it in time for me to start work.

Melaleuca and our friends on nb Keeping Up came past while we were tied up and we set off to catch them up once I’d finished work for the day.

The run through Milton Keynes was lovely in the spring sunshine.

This evening we’re tied up at Fenny Stratford and tomorrow after I’ve finished work we’re going to meet Simon at Bletchley Park where he volunteers and get a behind the scenes tour!

  1. Wonderful to see MB Willow on the Midland canals! There is an Ikea there at Fenny, just a ten minute walk form the stop lock. I am at Leighton Buzzard now after a fast and furious start from Marsworth, I am slowing down now as nine months without boating and knee surgery five months ago have taken a physical toll. It will take me a while to build up my strength again so s-l-o-w is the order of teh day for now.

    Take care of each other,

    • Thanks Jaq, we are still here in Fenny Stratford while I work. Setting off tomorrow for somewhere a bit closer to London. Much love xx
