Running total mileage 3768 miles
Slight miscalculation, the distance from Knottingley to Barnby Dun isn’t the same distance that we travelled yesterday, it is 18.1 miles although, travelling faster on the river and deeper northern canals we have still got here at a reasonable time. We are moored at pretty much the same place we moored last time we were here, two years ago, and nothing much has changed.
When coming down New Junction Canal we teamed up with a single hander, which speeded things up a bit for him since there are six swing bridges which would be a pain to have to do single handed (it would also hold the traffic up for a while on the roads).
Tomorrow it will be a trip through Doncaster to Sprotborough.
