Aire and Calder

A wet day through Leeds and onto Woodlesford for the night. Shared the locks with a couple on a plastic cruiser, who didn’t seem to know where they were going. Let them continue on alone with instructions to turn right at Castleford.
Electronically operated locks now until we get back onto the Trent and Mersey at Shardlow. Saw where the water level had reached at River Lock in Leeds, up 2.5 metres, back down at present but rain today means there is good flow.

Booked to go through Keadby Lock on Friday at 7:40am to go up the River Trent.

More rain but outlook is better for tomorrow.
