Cosgrove

On Friday we set off from bridge 75, aiming for the visitor moorings below the lock at Cosgrove. We thought the area may get busy due to the weekend being a bank holiday, however it has been the opposite, we were spoilt for choice as to where we wanted to moor. Whilst here we have walked both directions along the bank of the river Great Ouse, which is accessible by descending steps at the Iron Trunk Aquaduct.

       

                                              Looking from the river valley back towards the canal.

We also visited Stony Stratford, a small market town on the outskirts of Milton Keynes and found that it’s high street still had an abundance of useful shops. Of course Sunday involved having a roast dinner at the Barley Mow P.H.
Today, the weather was forecast to be a bit wet, however most of the day has been very pleasant. We visited an old curiosity shop at Wolverton Wharf, and gave the boat a wash so all in all a productive day. Tomorrow we are aiming for Stoke Bruerne and possibly a nice Indian takeaway.
