Last part of the Red Line

The Last One
After a failed attempt the previous week due to a flat battery on my camera I set out for Buscot again only this time with a full battery and a back up camera checked before the journey.

It was then off towards the lock for some photos of the weir pool Photo before heading off to the Church of St Johnís which was along a rather overgrown footpath...
