Today we left the Oxford Canal at Hawkesbury Junction and are now about a mile away back on the Coventry Canal as we couldn't get a space closer. My impressions of the North Oxford....... it's quite a pretty canal I loved the old iron bridges but there are many bridges in dire need of repair including this crack on a road bridge over the canal, just a tap from a vehicle and the side of the bridge is gone. The bridge at Ansty has been taken down and replaced at present with a scaffolding foot bridge. There's lots of 14 day moorings but they're usually full by midday and lots of left boats are just sitting there. Of the moorings shallow sides and overgrown edges would have made mooring difficult. Ben and I enjoyed the rural towpaths but the canal itself has been extremely busy.
