Lock 11, our first of the day posed no problems but lock 12 did. Despite full wellie I could not get over the bottom cill so Geoff had to let some water down and after a bit of a struggle I was in.
|This rural scene belies its surroundings...close by we could hear the wail of police sirens|
|the surrounding countryside is wonderful|
|I am not completely idle and we do have a routine at locks that involves some action on my part!|
|Various articles around the prop!!|
|So to the last lock as we approach Uppermill|
The two links above tell you all about it and the picture above shows some of the walkers.
We arrived about 2pm, another much longer day than we liked.......
|We managed to moor just above the park, but with our stern well out as there is a shallow ledge.|
Average speed:0.62 mph (2.43 lock/mph)
