1. A 'rolling-hill' footpath to Church Stowe away in the mist.
2/3. Looking towards the ordnance depot's disused canal and entrance portal/facade at the far end. Take a look at the three links below.
After leaving Cracks Hill we moored for a days just northeast of Welton then locked down the Buckby flight (7 locks, 63'0") and continued south to moor at Weedon.
Weedon proved to be very interesting, because it's the sight of what was once a large Royal Ordnance Depot dating back to 1803. There is a permanence about old military establishments and what they stood for, although all to sadly, as in this case, the buildings have been mostly left to become near derelict.
What an opportunity missed by the owners/Weedon local authority/British Waterways, et al, who have had decades to put their heads together, to co-develop a heritage site to be proud of, but have instead done essentially nothing. Shame on those responsible.

We have since moved on to moor just north of Bugbrooke Downs and the Midshires Way.
