Above Fenny Compton, it’s about to rain

About to rain on the Oxford Canal

Drove my narrowboat past Fenny Compton, headed north towards Napton Junction. The sky darkened dramatically, then unleashed a short shower that sent me scurrying inside for my waterproofs. It’s times like this that I miss my old boat’s wooden cabin, which kept you warm and dry in all weathers.

Unfortunately, if I want to get to Leeds before 8th November (the date they start closing some locks for scheduled repairs) driving in all weathers is going to be unavoidable.

The scenery around Fenny Compton is among the finest I’ve seen from a canal, and it’s clear why so many narrowboat hire companies have their bases in this area. Above Fenny Compton
