(Retrospective post for Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th June)
This was simply a move from the Foxton Locks Festival to Braunston, ready for the Historic Boat Gathering there the following weekend.
A good run, with nothing notable, other than the Leicester summit from Foxton Locks to Watford Locks can be fairly slow going in a deep draughted boat. The return trip confirmed what we thought n the way up - the Southern half generally seems worse than the Northern half.

|On into single locks at the bottom.|
|They are pretty locks, but sadly there is an ever present din from the M1,|
