Thorne to Woodlesford

Early get-away again. Lots of long straight canals, so Paul turned on the auto-pilot….the tiller strings worked a treat.

The bridges appeared very regularly, and were very big. The plus was they were electronic, with barriers and lights and sirens (which I enjoyed).

The dogs got into the routine and made sure they got plenty of rest in between getting off to do the bridges and locks.

We passed one of the few working collieries, Paul thinks it is now owned and run by a cooperative?


Got to Woodlesford really late. Three very long days, doing emails and work in turns as we are going along. Hopefully a short day tomorrow into Leeds. Night night!
