Completed our brief trip along the Avon to Bristol, one slight drama was at Saltford Lock where a wayward rope ripped one of the mushroom ventilators from the roof of the boat. Spent an hour trawling the lock trying to recover it to no avail so will now need to find a chandlery to buy a replacement. Other than that the trip was fairly straightforward. Bath deep lock was again quite an experience but due to the lack of time (or daylight more like!) we did not have time to go up to the Pultney Weir as I had hoped so today’s photos are just of the locks and the entry into the Kennet and Avon Canal from the River Avon.
