Water supply is becoming a bit of an issue on the R. Nene as advertised water supplies at Wellingborough and now Irthlingborough have been withdrawn. We can go a week on our fresh water supply but as we want to moor up and enjoy the river experience it would be useful to know that when we plan to take on water there IS a supply available. As a consequence I have emailed the Environment Agency requesting an up dated and accurate list of what facilities are available to boaters on the Nene and the Great Ouse.
Back to Sunday....
Jill went off
Woodford lock, Yarwood just edging out to pick me up from the lock landing
By the time we arrived at Denford lock Jill had appeared and the rain had started so it was decided that we would abandon our plans to head on to Thrapston. We rafted-up, or breasted-up i.e. moored alongside each other. With the MR crew able to cross our deck for access to the bank we planked up and secured the boats before heading the few yards into Denford village and Sunday lunch at the local pub.
The Cock Inn at Denford.
The Cock Inn at Denford is a MUST stop. The landlord is the top of his game, the welcome, both for dogs and humans was lovely, the atmosphere was warm, the open log fire also warm and the food very good - oh and the beer was very well kept as well!
