A slightly gentler start to the day as we did not set off until 8am. Of the 7 locks we went through today, 3 were flood locks and open. This meant Geoff only had to operate 4 for which he was very thankful. Some of the gates and paddles are very hard to operate. in fact the last one at Fall Ings nearly crippled him......good job it was the last of the day!
