I bumped into the wonderfully friendly Josie and Sarah again, who run Arthur Daily Trips on the Grand Union. What I didn't know is that they've recently moved into one of the lock cottages at Cowley Lock and, after helping me open a very reluctant lock gate, Josie gave me a tour of their new home. It's lovely and in such a great spot. I was especially envious of the garden!
If anyone would like a leisurely trip they're open again now spring is here. A really nice way to spend a birthday or Mother's day maybe?! Anyway, I wish them lots of success because they really are delightful.
