Travelled 1.9 miles, worked 7 locks in a time of 2 hours.
A bright and sunny start to what was a chilly morning. It will not be long before we will be lighting the stove. Autumn is beginning to put in an appearance.
Before working down the Buckby locks we topped the water tank up. There was hire boat Oak already filling their tank on the water point, so I asked the people on board if they would like to share the locks, to which they were more than happy to accept the invitation. On the lock gate it does still ask that you wait for up to an hour to share the locks. A boat had gone down on its own and they did not wait the hour. Water tank full, we set off with NB Oak and its crew.
