Unbelievedly after such hot weather at the weekend it is now back to almost winter. 

Tuesday morning was shopping and Church.  Excellent market and the Minster had a 12.30 service which we attended before departure.   It was the old Book of Common Prayer Communion service which neither of us had heard for ages.

Doncaster Town Lock was the first port of call and it does not have a very attractive approach.  Prior to departure it was dig out the woolly hat scarf and gloves which I had put to the back of the wardrobe..........

However it is mechanised so no hard work for Geoffrey which is probably a good thing when you see the size of the gates!

The size of the lock makes us seem very small
Just one more lock at Sprotbrough and we moored ourselves up for a couple of days.   I am off to London on Thursday to visit grandchildren and to a reception to mark the completed building of one of Giles' designs.
