Then it was the new A45 which is a new direct route into Daventry from the M1 at Junction 16. They are carving into the coutryside but are doing a good job about it, not looking an eyesore. It is needed and will take a lot of pressure off Weedon and the A5.
We then made the locks at Buckby, and was pleased to see anther boat waiting on the lock moorings for another boat to go up with them..
Things were going OK till we got to the third pound where the water levels were very low, so low in fact that we both got stuck just outside the gates..
