We set off from the canal basin near the Waterside restaurant. Luckily we were intercepted by a nearby resident who told us that we should make a detour along the main road for about a quarter of a mile. House-building is in progress and one of the bridges is closed until February.
We duly turned back and walked away from the town until we found the footpath sign which took us back to the canal, where we turned right along the towpath. It's about five miles to Foxton Locks.

We had another short break on the way back, but, for the first time in a while we walked (just) over ten miles.
