Here I am Rune
Distance 1.4 miles
Total 1661 Locks 80 Tunnels
Running total mileage 2300.3 miles
And so here we are at the end of 2015 which has been quite a busy year for us. Having looked back through the blogs we have covered 1112 miles and passed through 872 locks so we must be quite a bit fitter than when we started at the beginning of the year! In terms of places visited we have seen Birmingham, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Runcorn, Wigan, Liverpool, Skipton, Bingley, Leeds, Goole, Rotherham, Sheffield, Chesterfield, Lincoln, Nottingham, Newark, Leicester and a whole host of smaller villages. The highlights for me have been the trip down the Anderton Boat lift, the stay in Salthouse Dock in Liverpool and seeing the last trips of the oil tanker, Humber Princess, on the Sheffield and South Yorkshire.
For the coming year, the plans are to go up the Thames to Lechlade and then back through, by whatever route, to go up the Lee and Stort navigation, hopefully with a trip down the Wey and Basingstoke Canal. We’ll see how things pan out. Happy New Year!
