Up Hurleston Locks Onto the Llangollen Canal

Eric happy he's on the Llangollen Canal

Old boats breasted up at Hurleston Junction

Waiting below  Hurleston Locks

Today went up the flight of Locks at Hurleston ......what a palaver! The middle pound was low, the boat going up in front of us got stuck on the side and I asked the lock keeper to let down some water but he didn't and Eric couldn't get over the cill of the lock to leave it. So I walked up and let some down telling him we were stuck on the cill. Eric then managed to get out of the lock.

At the top we used the services before stopping at Bridge 5 on the Llangollen  Canal. Eric's's his favourite canal.
