On Tuesday we'll be heading out of Little Venice and making our way to Brentford and onto the Thames. We have some questions.... can anyone help?
1. From Bull's Bridge junction, is there anywhere decent to moor before reaching Brentford? We stopped just short of Willowtree Marina on the way into the Paddington Arm and will stop there again on the way back out if we don't know anywhere further on. We thought if we were going well and the weather wasn't horrible we could go on a bit further and stop somewhere after the junction but our Pearsons guide shows no moorings until you reach Brentford.
2. Can anyone suggest good locations for filling our water tank on the Thames without having to go into a marina with plastic cruisers?
3. If we move on each day for a couple of hours, how long should we allow to reach Oxford? Will a two week license allow us plenty of time?
4. Does anyone have any recommendations for good, free mooring spots along the way? Is there areas where there will be no option but to pay for a mooring?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
