Still in Foxton. But moved down thru the locks – first boat thru at 0915 – no other traffic. Marvellously quiet. Steve’s turn to drive – Viv does the wheeling . .
Oh, here’s one from the night before . . . Bridge 61
Must send this camera back, it’s stuck taking pictures of pubs . . . The Bell Inn at Gumley.
A nice 25 minute walk down the locks and along the canal . .
Nice range of beers (Grainstore, Sharp’s, Timothy Taylor, and Dorset Knob)
Back down the locks . . .
Quite a view from the top . . .
Shows you where we be! Here’s two short videos:
One of the giant gates in between locks:
And t’other of Viv winding the lock paddles – goes a bit wonky at the end as I forgot the boat would sink down . . .
Finally nearing the bottom and bridge 61 – from which the pub gets its name
Couple of 100 yds along and a very quiet, rural spot
Next to bridge 63 and an even shorter walk back to the Bell Inn
Boat looks very small here but it’s a pleasant mooring for one night.
Across the wee bridge to Gumley . . . later for dinner!
