The weather on Sunday was quite decent so Chris and I decided to go over to Braunston for a meal at The Admiral Nelson. It has a picturesque setting beside the canal and is a far more colourful scene than that which met me three days ago on the same canal near Daventry.
The food is not haute cuisine but the tables were full and the customers happy. As for the canal, it was extremely busy and a couple of boats usually shared the lock as they headed south-east or north-west. We had booked a table but allowed ourselves half an hour or so to stroll around and enjoy the scene. Very few water plants adorned the banks along this stretch with only Amphibious Bistort providing a bit of colour.
Amphibious Bistort was plentiful beside the canal.
