Windsor Bridge to Odiham Wharf is a trip of 45 miles and 39 locks.


Like most of the journey this year, the lower Thames is still new  new ground (well water) for Ellis and as such, Capt. E. has no experience or ‘insider knowledge’ in regards mooring spots.    The popularity of the navigation for ‘continuous moorers’, anecdotally suggests finding somewhere to tie up each day will be  interesting and don’t be surprised if we end up lassoed to a tree on occasions!


With that in mind, the entire trip in this direction will very much be an adventure for both crew and guests alike.  Roughly speaking, we’ll need to cover around 4 hours chugging each day in order to reach Odiham  by mid afternoon on our final full day – some days will be longer than others if necessary for water/fuel and refuse stops and we may end up double breasting against other boats.  It’s all part of the fun.


As usual, we’ll expect guests to come aboard around  1.30pm on day 1 and when we’ve  had a glass of something fizzy – (not to forget the introductory blah blah) we’ll  cast  off heading south east before joining the Wey and Godalming Navigation (briefly) then Basingstoke canal at Woodham Juction…  The rest will just happen!


Hopefully there’ll be opportunity to visit a few pubs and explore various towns and villages along the way… we’ll pass through/by: Old Windsor, Staines, Chertsey, Weybridge, Woodham, Woking, Brookwood,  Mytchett and Fleet before Odiham Wharf  where guests will depart after breakfast on the final morning
