Journey North 18: Reading – Abingdon 

30 miles, 8 locks

A fabulous day’s boating on the Thames. A little rain in the morning gave way to sunshine for the rest of the day.

Another Severner built by Charles Hill – Severn Enterprise – spotted near Goring.

Beautiful views near Dorchester

We arrived in Abingdon and by chance ended up mooring almost exactly where we moored in 2008 with Maffi when the Thames was in flood.

We spent the evening wandering around the lovely town, remembering our time here in 2008 and also childhood visits with my grandparents.
