Life on a barge

Today is a break from walking. About 35 minutes drive from Tintern into Gloucestershire is a junction of the Gloucester and Sharpness canal at Saul. We meet friends Gillian and John who, over the years, have travelled the length and breadth of the extensive canal network of Britain.

We walk to a nearby pub frequented by boaters and renowned for its famous pies.

The Three Horsehoes pub at Saul. Pies to die for. And enormous! We all agree the best tasting ever. A true find.

We would like to try a canal boating holiday at some stage. It is a very tranquil way of seeing the countryside.
