Nb. Matilda Rose following us away from Sunday's mooring
MR mooring at Hilgay
Our blog reader's boat
Passing over the aqueduct that crosses the relief channel
We arrived in Stoke Ferry and continued to the end of the navigation and the winding point. Lots of pleasant private moorings and a caravan site line the banks here but a busy road crosses the river inches from the GOBA mooring.
GOBA mooring at Stoke Ferry
And the prohibitive notice by the GOBA mooring. Perfectly legitimate but a bit Blackpool Landlady (forgive me Blackpool for the crass stereotype) and therefore not welcoming and not to our taste...we moved on.
It was now head back to Hilgay and the village moorings or return to the GOBA moorings beyond the village...
The GOBA moorings won out.
Coming back across the lake at Wittington with the British Sugar Factory in front of us
And back where we started..
