Levels at Linton Lock part 2

Some comparisons of the water levels on the River Ouse/Ure at Linton Lock. Taken on Friday while we waited for levels to drop, and on Tuesday as we came back through.
The weir on Friday at lunchtime.
and on Tuesday

The steps from the moorings below the lock on Tuesday

What mooring? What steps? on Friday

Tuesday, the signs on the bank were covered on Friday.

Moored up on Tuesday with the floating pontoon ahead.
No mooring and the floating pontoon up high.
The middle level of the pontoon, stuck with big branches wedged underneath.
Seeing the changes that can so quickly happen to the river, certainly causes you to stop and think and of, and have respect for the forces of nature and the powerful creator God behind it all.

  1. Goodness, what a change! Down the Derwent in Derbyshire, there are markers showing the levels which the water can reach. Scary heights!
