Foxton Locks Festival

21st and 22nd June we spent the weekend at Foxton locks festival. What a brilliantly organised event and a cracking pub at bridge 61. We left Debdale Wharf marina at about 4.30 and boated down to the bottom of the locks, a 20 minute wait gave us time for a swift pint before boating up the locks, Foxton was strangely deserted.

Once at the top the organisers had reserved us a brilliant mooring right next to two trading boats one selling cheese and the other icecream..... Happy days! We were jioned for the weekend by a couple of friends who thoroughly enjoyed the experience and appear to have the boating bug. Left around 2 on the Sunday to boat down to North Kilworth, I think we've now got the prop about right. Too much beer and a fair bit of sunburn but a great weekend.
