Nearly at Lincoln

Left Cromwell Lock 9.30 and took the ebbing tide to arrive at Torksey for about 1.00 ish. This was so there was enough water to let us into Torksey lock, to be “penned up” from the river onto the Fossdyke Canal. The Fossdyke goes via Lincoln all the way to Boston (on the Wash). It was built by the Romans and is one of the oldest navigations in the UK.

When we arrived, moorings at Torksey were pretty packed so we decided to go onto Saxilby. We found a lovely mooring under some willow trees which provided a bit of shade in the baking sun. It was the hottest place in the UK at nearly 30 degrees according to Lincoln radio. Whew!
