At the first lock of the day, Cassio bridge we look down over boats and lots of bridges crossing the cut.
Then surprisingly an underground train goes over the top.
The new top lock gates have come a long way. The Stanley Ferry workshop is on the Aire and Calder near Wakefield. Bet they didn't come by boat!
Just to show how cold it still is.
We met our nephew at Ricky this afternoon he has been out working locks and driving, and I think enjoying it too. He has visited us on Tacet in the past but not actually been along with us, and in true family tradition is very happy to be boating.
Although I love working locks too, it was quite nice to be down inside the cabin, baking, and the cake tins are filled now with flapjack, Easter buns and we've had hot homemade sausage rolls for tea.
We stopped at Denham and enjoyed a walk into the village, a lovely traditional English village with some very old properties, a flint church, and 3 pubs!
Dutch gabled house, once home of the actor Sir John Mills
The Mill house, more Dutch gabling and the mill stream running through
Flint stone church
Any idea how to pronounce this?
Spring is trying to break through.
