Brookwood Country Park

A number of the first group of boats have made it to Brookwood Country Park (as opposed to Brookwood Village where I live) whilst the second group of boats are all on their way up Woodham to Bridge Barn where we were last night.

The real challenge comes tomorrow when we tackle Deepcut - I am not worried about it just very pleased that we have the opportunity to travel up this flight of locks which are, arguably, one of the most beautiful flights of locks in the country.

The photo shows Finch, Stonghold and Orion's Wey queueing for Lock 7 at the start of the St Johns flight this morning.  I'll try and take more photos tomorrow but it is quite difficult when you are single handed!
