Day 1 - Friday

We were all on board by about 1pm on Friday and ready to leave. The schedule required us to get within a day’s cruise from Warwick – but there are quite a few locks on this section. We set off at 13:20 but just moved out of the marina for a late lunch. After a short break the journey proper began.

The day’s route included the Bascote Staircase – two connected locks where the bottom gate of the top lock is also the top gate of the bottom one.

We eventually moored just before the Welsh Road lock at 16:30.

Day 1: 4 miles, 14 locks
