We continued onwards, walking the bank of Bottisham lode (lode - a man made drainage ditch/dyke) until we came to the edge of a habitation. Not a clue where we were until we hauled up outside a church and found we were in the village of Lode...

Thatched cottages abound
Lode Water Mill
A tree lined avenue - so unusual and welcome on the fens
Heading back to the boats on an almost deserted country lane
