Sykehouse Lift Bridge

Here I am Rune
Distance 9.6 miles
Total 2781 Locks  130 Tunnels
Running total mileage 3803.3 miles 

After a ‘proper’ day’s cruising we now have got a decent tank of hot water again so no more boiling kettles to wash up. The canal was surprisingly quiet from Thorne to Bramwith Junction given that the weather was pretty good and it was a Sunday however it became a lot busier up New Junction Canal to our overnight mooring here at Sykehouse Lift bridge. Of course all of these boat cheered the fishermen up no end as they clearly had a competition on, and it was raining by then!

The aim for tomorrow is to get to Bank Dole lock where the River Aire goes off towards Selby.
