Going Down.....Stockton Locks To Long Ichington

Weather forecast was wet but we  decided to move as it was still dry when we were ready to go. This time we were prepared with the wet gear, so when the rains came we were fine. We waited at the top of Calcutt Locks and another boat came, which made it easier as we worked through the flight of ten locks. No traffic coming up at all, so the next lock had to be filled as we were following a pair of boats going down. Ben had a rather wet walk, not that he cares, from last night mooring down to the bottom of the locks. We moored near the 'Two Boats' pub, so a pint is in order this evening. The rain is hammering down now, so glad we're moored up.
