Locking On The Llangollen


 NB Bendigedig entering a lock

Willymoor Lock with the pub closed until midday


Ben patiently waiting

Today we've worked through just four locks, much easier with other boats taking it in turns to go through. At Quoisely lock the gate paddle gear definitely needed a little grease.....it was a case of squeaks as you wound them up and down. The ferocious side weirs didn't get us going down these locks, they are always worse going up towards Llangollen. Just a few boaty pictures and Ben the dog of course, tied up for safety while I am locking the boat through.....don't want him following me across the lock gates!
