Thursday August 20 Knottingley to Selby along River Aire and Selby Canal 13 miles, 3 locks
What a glorious blue sky day! John turned Annie and we returned the short distance to Bank Dole Lock. John took photos of the Tom Puddings at the boatyard opposite the junction.
Bank Dole Lock is very slow to fill , so we sat in the sun and felt sorry for the decaying lock cottage. The depth gauge was well in the green today, with a gentle current.
Once on the River Aire, we enjoyed the twisting turns as we travelled to Beal Lock. Liana chatted to local boaters as they helped each other. John had to work at getting off the pontoon due to an unhelpful wind!
Reaching Selby, Liana operated the electric loft bridge and we moored by the lock. John organised for us to leave at 0830 to go upriver to Nanirn Lock and York.
