|Black Prince Hire boat trying to pass me on the wrong side, (on canals|
you pass oncoming boats on the right) had to chuck into reverse and
avoid which really p---d of the fisherman.
|Nice property at Tardebigge|
|Top Lock, one of the deepest on the system with a 14 foot fall.|
|Locking down in the sunshine, we have a system, each of the 3 of|
us steers for 5 locks, whilst 1 locks the boat down, 1 lockwheels ahead
and prepares the next locks, then we swap, works well.
|Passing a boat on the way up.|
|Had a break for lunch and refreshing Pimm's after 14 locks. See the|
locks marching away downhill.
|Typical Tardebigge lock, easy to use mitred bottom gates with gate|
paddles, slightly harder full width top gate with ground paddles,
sometimes quite stiff to operate. By-wash to the left.
|36th and final lock of the day at Stoke Wharf. Despite the number of|
locks it was a pleasant, enjoyable day.
