Not a bad stop.
Close to the amenities.
I tend to moor away from the road, probably 2 min walk up the towpath which suits me better.
You get better solar, the mobile signal is better and you don’t get intrusions from the odd idiot coming over the bridge beeping their horn.
As I wake up, I can look out across the field.
The sound of the trains are blocked by the industrial units which stand between me and the dual railway tracks.
I moved slightly up, by about 14m. The sound of the trains woke me up. It was only the length of the boat. When you enter into ‘line-of-sight’ of the trains, you get all the noise.
People say you get used to the sound of trains. I’d rather not have it in the first place.
I’m now here behind the sheds and I can’t hear a thing apart from the odd noisy duck.
Although I get a tad less solar, it’s worth it.
Mooring at Souldern wharf
There’s one more stop about a mile south from Aynho. It’s close to the village of Souldern down a windey farmers lane.
Walking down the canal, I took these pictures.…
