We have pressed on along the Calder and Hebble as far as Dewsbury, I have to say that I shan’t be sorry to see the last of these short locks since it is becoming a bit wearing holding the boat in position whilst the lock drains. By my reckoning we have about another 8 miles to do before we get onto the big locks of the Aire and Calder Navigation and my ‘worries’ are over.
|Not something that you want to see as you pass across the top of a weir, directly in front of me is a wide beam boat coming out of the entrance to Murfield Cut, that I need to get into!|
|I'm willing to be corrected on this, but as far as I can tell, these are figs growing in Yorkshire!|
