Boveney Lock Moorings (River Thames) – Tuesday 25th April

We woke up to gorgeous sunshine though it was very cold.

Harris Boat Builders
We had a long day ahead so we got underway quite early.  Up past Michael Dennett Boat Builders who have been restoring wooden boats in Chertsey since 1988.

Then into Staines where I made a visit to Sainsburys to top up the fridge.  We bought a new fridge during the winter which is a larder fridge as opposed to the one we had which had a silly little freezer.  I have so much space now – it’s fantastic.
  


Bell Weir Lock and Old Windsor Lock and then Windsor Great Park.  I just love this gate house tucked under the bridge.



I just wanted to get past this tree before it fell on top of us.



Romney Lock and through Windsor but we weren’t stopping there today.  We dumped toilet and rubbish and filled with water at Boveney Lock and then went a short way up to the Boveney Lock moorings which were completely empty. 

I’m not sure if people know about the new system of mooring on the EA moorings on the Thames.  There is a website, Thames Visitor Moorings and if you stop at one of the designated EA moorings you are supposed to go on to the site and register your arrival.  It’s very simple and we did it for the first time yesterday and again today.  At present, it is a year’s trial.
