Newark to Cromwell Lock

 Wednesday 30 September Visiting Newark and downriver to Cromwell Lock (5 miles, 1 lock)

Today’s weather forecast is rainy from lunchtime, so John has booked Annie and Delhi in at Cromwell Lock to leave for Torksey at 10am. 

We walked the short distance via Town Lock to Newark’s Wednesday retail market. Liana bought a warmer duvet set!

As rain fell, we read and watched tv.

Later on, under grey skies, we cruised a breezy but not unpleasant five miles through Nether Lock, under the A1, past North Muskham to moor on the visitor pontoon above Cromwell Tidal Lock, ready for a 10am start tomorrow.

T Cromwell, a workboat digger arm was being repaired by the lock. Four brick BBQs and picnic tables were near the pontoon.
