|We waited in vain and so just before 9 a very friendly lock keeper let us in|
|They do look quite daunting from down below.|
|48 minutes later we are 30 ft higher at the top of the 3 and looking back at Bingley|
|At this time of the morning there were no gongoozlers around.|
|The leaky gates gave our cratch cover a very good wash down!|
|and now we were another 60 ft above Bingley|
|An easy day for Geoff on the locks and gates|
We were lucky with the weather, just one shower as we neared the top and the temperature remained very bearable much to my delight..
At about 6pm the only other boat of the day appeared from the top of the locks, so glad we had not waited longer.....
