Made a visit to York this midweek for a few days 31/1st May/June 2017.
Moored up at museum gardens for overnight stay.
After mooring up I was distressed to hear a mixed group of youths opposite my boat who were under the influence effing and blinding quite loudly, which did spoil my first expectations of York.
I subsequently enjoyed a good day with friends in the city.
At 4.30am the following morning I was awoken by noisy youths alongside my boat.
One of the youths was messing with my mooring rope.
I quickly undid my canopy to challange these 4 youths who ran off immediately.
This post is probably not unique, it is just a reminder how a visit to York can be unsettling.
I might add whilst visiting York for 2 days I didnt see any police officers at all.
I am sure the police know what is going on at the moorings in York, but I must assume that they havnt the manpower to deal with this probkem of drunken youths who think it would be a laugh to see a boat floating adrift through York.
I have no future plans to visit York after these experiences.
