We left at 9.00am and went through Church Lock at Grove.
We pulled out behind them and met in the next lock..
It turned out that Del was chatting to the guy who had made Freddie Mercury's pink suit in the video "Great Pretender". he had also made the blue suit in the "Barcelona" video, his name was David Chambers.
It still amazes us who we meet in locks, and reminds us of what the canals have to offer.
We parted with them at Ivinghoe locks and made our way onto Pitstone via the swingbridge, with the Ivinghoe Beacon in the background..
