Here I am Rune
Distance  7.6 miles 
Total 3047 Locks  160 Tunnels
Running total mileage 4465.4 miles

A particularly good days locking today if I may say so, although it was primarily down to getting in front of a family group of 11 who on a 2 week holiday in a hire boat and are keen to get as far as they can in the time. With their able assistance we scuttled through Audlem flight of locks (15) in something around about 2 hours which works out at about 8 minutes a lock. I was going to stop for lunch on the visitor moorings in Audlem, but given the speed of the assistance we were getting it seemed a pity to waste the chance.

Tomorrow’s target is bridge 59 which is just beyond Tyreley Locks, so we have 10 locks to do and about 6 miles, so less work than today.
