Where is it?

Featured Posts

Last time I came through that lock I was single handed.

 

You have to leave the boat at the other side of the road bridge, walk up a lane, cross the road bridge then set the lock.

 

This I did, but when I got back to the boat and pootled to the lock, a helpful person had closed the gate, presumably thinking that some idiot had left it open. Well I had, but on purpose! The boat and I were of course hidden under the bridge!

 

I called out to people, and eventually someone noticed me and re opened the gate.....

This happens on the river Stort quite a lot. Walkers keep closing gates ''obviousely not dustmen though'' where on this river we leave gates open.

These days there are quite often CRT Volunteer lockies here, which can be very helpful.

There were some there up til last October - end of the boating season.

I guess they will be back in March when it starts to get busy again.

Not full time though. "Tis a matter of luck if they are there when you need to go through.
