Cold and frosty morning at Buckby Locks.
In the wide locks at Buckby, no other boat to share with makes locking a little harder.
Gill steering between the 7 locks at Buckby.
The Watford Staircase Locks, 4 narrow locks one on top of each other.
In Lock 3 of the Narrow staircase locks.
Reflections on the Leicester section of Grand Union Canal.
More reflections on a sunny, crisp day.
Lovely winter colours.
The following couple of days where Foggy in the mornings, eventually burning off into sunny days, makes for some interesting steering.
Poor visibility needs a good lookout to spot other boats.
Just spotted the light on this oncoming boat in time to avoid a collision.
Fog starting to lift.
Clear skies on a winters day.
Original milepost from when the canal was
called the Grand Junction Canal Company, we turned
back a few miles further towards Leicester.
Overcast the next day, the canal loops around Cracks Hill
near Crick adding around 2 miles to the journey, sign of a
James Brindley built canal, he followed the contours of the
land rather than dig cuttings or build embankments.
