Caravan lift bridge (215) pictures
The morning walk took Boots and I past the lift bridge this morning.
CRT were on site discussing what they would do to open navigation and were confident they could get it cleared by the end of the day tomorrow (or even today). This could be impressive but it seems CRT don’t manage the Oxford Canal but panic respond. It is no surprise the lift bridge collapsed – indeed, it is surprising it has stayed up so long. It is good fortune that no-one was hurt (canoeists and narrow boats often pass under the bridge)
Here are some pictures

No surprise - caravan life bridge collapse
Friday, August 01, 2014
The boat is loud, unfinished (but nearly finished) and we were caught out by the sun going home early. I had expected to be shouted at as we motored home - but no - the London Boaters waved at us. None shouted and screamed when we tried to turn in a space JUST big enough. Nor did they hurl abuse at us. It was a far cry from the boating I am used to in these parts. I liked it.
I had a BRILLIANT night. Thank you to everyone for being so amazing.
