Just a couple of days ago in 2013. 11th? when we took delivery of our boat isolated by a badly broken lock from the rest of the canal system. 

About a week later much of the Aylesbury Basin, 22 boats  were evacuated by road to Willowbridge.

The rest of the Canal Society boats moved themselves up to the new Circus Field Basin about 4 months later

I wonder whether the above pictured pontoon at Dunham survived the winter floods.

It has. We drove over the bridge at the weekend on our way home from a lovely weekend in Louth, and the pontoon was still there.

It's a good place to stop in an emergency

It's a good place to spend the weekend. A couple of lovely pubs within walking distance.

 

We spent many a weekend there.
